Welcome back to another episode of Mika’s Craft Store Report. As always YMMV but Hobby Lobby has the small bottles of craft paint for 30% off, clearance on high quality art markers and various beads/pendants.
Also 50% off their store brand brushes if you were interested in adding to your paint brush collection.March 6, 2022 at 4:20 pm #1655381March 7, 2022 at 6:39 am #1655392etruscanParticipant
Very cute! I’m not familiar with these kits. Is the background printed in each box half and then you add things from the kit to make the rest of the scene?March 7, 2022 at 7:51 am #1655393

For these ones in particular the backgrounds and any other paper part are printed in the booklet and you cut them out as needed. There’s very little room for error since everything is so small.
Everything comes as parts and you follow the instructions to make buildings/structures/etc and put it together. If you don’t plan on deviating from the instructions it only requires small scissors, an exacto, liquid glue, and a glue stick.March 27, 2022 at 3:09 pm #1656264
Another DIY kit’s done, which means another round of poorly-taken photos of it! Yay!
Close-up-ish photos of the interior of the piece:
It’s a little house that doubles as a lantern. Sadly it doesn’t light up as the batteries are dead and I don’t have any replacements.
Some of the original design was modified since a couple pieces were just way too small to properly cut out or I needed to hide some ugly spots.August 1, 2022 at 11:41 am #1661213
In the event that anyone is looking to buy some more art supplies (because, ya know, you might need that obscure shade of green one day) Utrecht/Blick’s is having a sale right now. Their store-brand stuff is the most discounted.
This is the link to their paint section but there’s other stuff on sale like polymer clay and brushes.November 12, 2022 at 2:14 pm #1664963
