Altered Pumpkins + More

A few fun products and techniques will transform your crafty world! Today our designers will share how they created gorgeous, petite-sized projects for their home…all with just a handful of Prima + [re]design products®!

“Fall is here and Halloween is just around the corner! It’s time to make our own home decor. Here, I altered a plastic pumpkin and I used a little mason jar to create a candle. I simply painted the pumpkin with an orange chalk-like paint, I added Clear Crackle paint on top, then added grey chalk-like  paint. I used the amazing  Redesign Mould - Tillden Flourish for embellishing my pumpkin. Then  I applied  the Redesign Wax Paste - Eternal. ~ Nathalie

For the home-made candle I used an small Mason Jar. I painted it first with black chalk-like paint and then with grey chalk-like paint. I used some embellishments created with the Redesign Mould - Warrington Framework .  I also applied a coat of the gorgeous Redesign Wax Paste - Eternal.

Karine created a GORGEOUS table setting! “When I saw the beautiful “Time” [re]design transfer™ I immediately thought of using it on a charger plate. The flower was perfect for my 10 inch wood plate! I went a bit crazy with the moulds and the paper clay, but I love the end result. I used white gesso as a base coat. Then, I applied my transfer and my moulded pieces.” ~ Karine

“I painted the sides with Art Alchemy - Metallique Acrylic Paint in Soft Satin, but it was too shiny for what I wanted to create, so I used a wash of white gesso over it. I used the Art Alchemy - Metallique Wax - Bronze Age to enhance the details. Next I created a napkin to go with it. I mixed my Art Alchemy - Metallique Acrylic Paint in Soft Satin with Folk Art Textile Medium and painted it with a dabbing brush over the Lenore Corners Stencil."

We all have a glass jar lying around. Don’t toss it out. Upcycle it and create a gorgeous vase! “I altered a very simple jar for dried flowers. I painted it with chalk-like paint and add a piece of transfer cut from the [re]design transfer™ sheet. After adding a string and imprint from the mold, it was ready! “~ Marta

Jaya’s here with a breath-taking altered charger plate. With deep, rich colors this will make any table setting look exquisite! All she used was black Impasto paint (for full coverage over the charger and moulded pieces), then added a touch of [re]design wax™ to catch the details. Simple, yet STUNNING!

Altered books are all the rage! They’re inexpensive and create beautiful decor pieces. Kasia chose a beautiful blue palette for her altered book, then highlighted the moulded pieces and crackled effect with a touch of white gesso to soften the look. A beautiful vintage touch can be achieved with just a few products!

Stacey is here with a creative storage solution! "I gave these cute little jars a shabby makeover using a few [re]design with Prima® products.  First I gave them a coat of chalk-like paint.  I then cut up the transfers to fit onto the jars.  Next I added the moulds and Wax Pastes.   I think they turned out really sweet and will be perfect on my desk for paintbrushes or pens." ~ Stacey
