Butterfly Mask

Last week I promised to let you know how we had created the mask which I put onto the blog.  So here is what we used.
Firstly we gathered together some of Friendly Plastic Scraps and heated them all on the Teflon Sheet and then rolled them flat.  Do not worry about the colours, or if  black is showing through as the paints will totally cover the Friendly Plastic.

We painted the mask with Colourful Thoughts Multi-Surface Paint (Copper).  The paint goes straight onto the mask - unlike when using the Alcohol Inks when the mask has to be primed first.

We then heated some of the scrap plastic onto the mask and used a rubber stamp to create the relief in the Friendly Plastic.

Lastly the mask was finished by painting over the Friendly Plastic with the paint using both Copper and Peacock.  The Butterflies were added (these had been made using the Butterfly Cutters (set of 3).

(I will be adding the paints to the web-site today/tomorrow).

Who would think this was from waste Friendly Plastic?
