Hey Creative- today we have a Mermaid Hop with Rita Barakat and Style Tech Crafts! I have been wanting to show you this project since I finished it! One of the things I love ❤️ about mixed media is that you can use anything in your work! Today I’m going to kick off this blogging extravaganza (yes prizes are involved!) and share some really cool things I bet you’ll don’t know you could do with vinyl! Did you know you can color on Vinyl? You can and I will show you how! (*This is a sponsored post)
A couple of years ago I tried Style Tech Craft Vinyl at Creativation. This vinyl was unlike any I had ever seen, the sparkle was stunning. Style Tech Craft was generous enough to send some Ultra metallic FX vinyl for our team to play with for this hop and enough for a prize for you! If you watched Mixed Media Monday you saw some of the amazing things you can do with this vinyl (you can watch it below). Something that is not on the video is how I made this mermaid.
First I drew a mermaid on a piece of paper and cut her out. Doing this makes for a great stencil to trace, piece by piece. A small tip Sharpie works great on this vinyl even though the surface is super slick and shiny. Each piece is cut from different colors to make one large (20 inches!) mermaid.
I only had a black Sharpie so I tried using alcohol inks and it worked! Once the ink is completely dry you can layer colors or lift color by using blending solution and a Q-tip. The details are striking on top of all the glitter don’t you think?
