441 Blue Ribbon Magnet Project
#441 – Blue Ribbon Paper Magnet
Paper Casting Project


A charming little gift to celebrate a very special someone!

        

 

Materials Needed:

1 Rycraft cookie stamp or craft stamp #441 – Blue Ribbon
Cotton linter - (see Rycraft Paper Casting Kit and Refill)
Clear acrylic varnish
Acrylic paints: navy blue, light blue, white
1 small magnet (from craft store)
Glue

*Note:  Alternately, the casting for this project may be made from clay instead of paper (see Basic Clay Casting Instructions). The choice is yours.
Instructions:

1.  When paper casting is dry, apply a light coat of varnish to seal the casting from moisture (so it will not swell and lose the design when paint is applied). Apply a light 2nd coat of varnish and let dry. Note:  You may also apply varnish to the back of the casting for more permanence. Variation: Apply varnish only to the design and leave the outside edge unvarnished.
2.  Apply paints to casting, one color at a time, and let dry between coats so that colors don't run together. Let dry.
3.  Optional:  Apply a light coat of spray varnish to seal in paint. Let dry. Apply a 2nd coat of varnish if desired for more sturdiness. Let dry. 
4.  Glue magnet to back of casting and let dry.

Casting above was painted with light blue and a medium royal blue;
casting below features a navy blue and gray blue color scheme.
