Ok so, I have been crafting for lots of years, and tried lots of different products that do lots of different things, but when it comes to something quick, simple and super fun ... Inkodye is it.
So i was moving fast here,not wanting to spend too much time on an apron that is going to get used while I'm painting ... in other words ... there will be paint everywhere on this apron in no time.
First off, I just painted the apron with a red and orange, blending the colors a little. The ink goes on sort of clear, so blending can be a little difficult. Next I place this stencil on top of the apron, the placed it in the window sill for just a few minutes.
You see, the ink is light sensitive, so when it's exposed to sunlight the color develops right before your eyes.
And here it is after I rinse, washed and dried it .. so fun!
Next I tried it on a file folder with this alphabet stencil ...
So fun ... to be used in a future project.
While I was on an apron kick, I decided to use masking tape to mask off strips ... The colors are sooo rich and yummy.
And here it is after I rinsed it and peeled off the tape. I love the way the tape worked ... possibilities ... endless!
Oh, No, I couldn't leave well enough alone ... no, no ... out came the black permanent marker for a little doodling.
Then I white permanent marker , just to pop some of the doodles.
I love the quick transformation of these very simple aprons. Possibilities ... unlimited.
What a great thing to do at a kids party ... they would think it's all so magical!
