Finally! A reason to love science. This project comes from Alison and her website www.oopseydaisyblog.com. And it's all about chemistry: 2 parts paint, 1 part dish soap. That's pretty much it. So let's get started.
If you're not entirely creative, then this project should be liked, clipped, and shared, but no more. If you are creative, then you too should like, clip and share. But then get this project DONE.
Create a fun card or lottery ticket or whatever that requires you to make homemade scratch-off stuff. That's what this card is all about.
* Card or something with love sayings (to be revealed)
* Dish soap (any kind will do)
* Silver metallic paint (from a craft store)
* Clear contact paper
1. Mix 2 parts paint to 1 part soap. Don't over think it; just eyeball it
2. Roll out a square piece of contact paper (enough to cover your creative design)
3. Paint on the mixture and let dry 1 hour
4. Paint a second coat of mixture over first layer
5. Cut out your desired shape from dried paper
6. Gently peel off contact paper from design
7. Firmly press silver cut-out onto your design
Kinda embarrassing that this project is super cool and crazily easy. Like, who can't do this?!
I may not have a Valentine this year, but I would love to use this technique to make fun quirky lottery cards for friends and family. They're all winners, of course.
What will you do with this cool scratch-off DIY technique?
