By Irene Jacobs
This will be available again in September on Aussie Gifts and Crafts
I love the softness of chalk and beautiful effects can be achieved using chalk on vinyl. The chalk recommended for this project is by CreaEasy. Stickers are placed onto vinyl and coloured with chalk and then used to create a marine mirror.
When using chalks, place the adhesive side of the sticker onto the adhesive side of the vinyl The chalk will adhere to the adhesive of the vinyl.
Marine Project Pack includes
Use chalk applicator or cotton buds to colour the stickers, the chalk will easily adhere to the vinyl.
Bleed colours together for interesting effects. Ensure that the vinyl inside the sticker has a good
covering of chalk and no sticky spots remain. Cut the sticker out - Use small scissors to cut around
the edge of the completed sticker and put aside. Continue until the desired number of stickers
have been completed. For seaweed, colour a section of vinyl in greens and cut out shapes.
Position your shells on the front of your mirror to design your layout. Once satisfied, draw an outline
onto the last piece of vinyl and cut out a strip to define the outline.

desired stickers off of their backing sheet and place the adhesive side of the sticker onto the
adhesive side of the vinyl. (The two adhesive sides are together). Allow a little room between the

and work on a few stickers at a time.

Position this strip onto the mirror backing. If allowing a mirror
border on the bottom add a strip to protect the bottom of the
mirror. If adding a bird in the sky or freestanding effects, define
the outline by drawing around the sticker. If cutting out individual
sticker shapes, cut well inside the line or you may have a gap.
Once your outlines are defined, remove the backing paint and silver from the desired area of the
mirror. Complete outlines first, and then remove the larger area in a few sections. If you are unsure of
the process for removing mirror backing email firstname.lastname@example.org for further instructions.

put aside. Now remove the backing from the hologram and place adhesive side up.
