The rest of these guys were done with white (thicker) Walmart spoons and acrylic paint. (Pink and teal with white paint mixed with food coloring.. The purple was purchased that way.. It was before I had the stroke of food color genius)
As I posted before, you have no idea how fun this is until you actually try it. I just can’t fight it. Come along on my journey of melted proportions!
Here is the very first one from the previous post, but painted silver with acrylic paint
So you know those adorable little appetizer or dessert spoons that you love because they make you feel like a giant ? Well mix em with that cool silver color plastic that looks real, and what do you get???
This one was done with a black spoon. Problem was, the two colored spoons I tried were thinner so they melted thru or caught on fire easier. (and I had less of them)… Still cute tho.
This one was the mini silver spoons but I got a little cray and used too many, which made it look crowded. Now it looks cuter Cuz I painted it. (Using white acrylic paint and the food coloring from my mod Podge projects. Whaaaaat!)
Omg. I can’t stop! What am I planning to do with them you ask? I have no flippin clue! But I can’t stop cranking them out!!!! Here is a pic of one.. I painted it silver after this pic but don’t have an updated picture.. Actually I have about 5 other ones I haven’t taken a pic of yet, so I’ll update this post tomorrow…
These are just white plastic spoons from Walmart. (I tried some dollar store ones too, but the lower the quality the easier you burn holes in them or set them on fire)..
We are moving on Friday, and for the past month and a half I’ve been staying at my parents house. (My recent obsession with crafts needs no other explanation).. Anyway, I’ve been prepping my room decor and bathroom decor, so prepare yourself for some (translate: a lot) of my projects!!!!!
I should really blame the black hole that is pinterest…. Saw coloring glass with mid podge and food coloring, and guess who now has a permanent tint covering my arms. And hands. And legs. And feet? How’d that happen?!
Then I doodled on them with puff paint.. Trying to copy those Moroccan themed projects. What do you think?
Here is a mason jar toothbrush holder. I drew with puff paint then colored it in. But it wouldn’t be a true Vira project if I didn’t use nail polish! Lol. This is colored by mixing the same food coloring colors from earlier with gel top coat nail polish! Then painted on with a small brush and cured in small sections. I did a top coat of clear mod podge because the polish was kinda sticky/tacky.
Then, of course I needed to get a mason jar soap dispenser (duh).. But wait.. It can’t be plain! Must tie in colors and designs to make it matchy matchy! (Soap dispenser from bed bath and beyond)
So now we have ourselves a cotton round holder, a qtip holder, a bobby pin holder, a toothbrush holder, and a soap dispenser in a similar theme! (I should mention my bathroom is going to be grey with jewely pink, purple and teal).
