Pebeo Fantasy Phone Covers ~ Crafty Crusaders

Do you have a heap of old phone cases lying around that have seen better days??
Why not give them a new lease of life with some Pebeo Fantasy Prisme & Moon Paints as well as some Vitrail Paints and Cerne Relief Outliners. These are super easy to make, you you need to do is pour and use a toothpick to create some patterns.


Some tips to working with Fantasy & Vitrail Paints are:

  • Don’t overwork/ overblend the colours. adding the colours side by side and letting them do their own dance creates the most spectacular results.
  • Don’t work directly under a fan with these paints, a fan will develop a dryer skin on top of the colours that doesn’t work as well when dragging patterns through the colours.
  • Leave the colours over your surface for at least 15min to 40min before dragging patterns through it. You want the colours to settle into each other but not dry to much. You still want the colours to be able to move. Waiting before adding patterns holds the pattern shapes a little better.
  • Don’t get too attached to the initial pour, they keep working and activating with each other as they dry, that is where the magic happens.

Enjoy this video tutorial on how I created the second cover and how I have used the Cerne Relief Outliner. 🙂

These are the quick and easy steps to creating the background on the first cover.
These would make awesome Christmas presents that you could personalize with their names.

If you revamp your phone covers we would love to see them over on the Facebook page

Crafty Crusaders ~ Pebeo Porcelaine 150 Paints on Tile Coasters

This is my first play with the Pebeo Porcelaine 150 Glossy Brilliant Paints set, OMG So much fun, and can I say Yumm!!!
This is a great personalized Gift Idea that even the kids could take part with! 🙂
All you need is some Pebeo Porcelaine paints, a paint brush, a sponge and an oven. I have used white square 10×10 tiles for these.  To turn them into a drink coaster you can add some sticky backed felt to the back of them or glue some cork mat on the back.
To stamp a background on your tiles I have used a piece of foam from packaging and added a little porcelaine paint to it to create a stamp pad. I pressed the stamp onto the foam pad then onto the tile to get the stamped oriental writing on it.
I started by drawing up a quick template on what I wanted to add.
