MagiKote Product: Have You Seen It?

Make a Lizard!  It is so awesome to be able to create just about anything you like, without having to form molds first.  Grab a block of styrofoam, or scraps, and make something awesome! 

If you haven't tried it yet, you just have to get a bottle of MagiKote, and let your imagination go wild.  These are a couple of projects that I have done for Deco Art recently, and you can go to their site (listed below) for the complete directions.  Play with it, have fun, and be creative!!  Let me know if you have any additional questions. ; )

Which Sealer Do I Recommend?

I just received this message on my Etsy site (, regarding a question on which sealer to use for projects:

Hi Tina,
Your flower pot is adorable! I also paint terra cotta pots and I was wondering if you'd share with me what you seal yours with. I have been using urethane, but I have found that they start to peel. I am not an artist, I don't plan on selling these anywhere. I just do them for my kids teachers with handprints or thumbprint art. Thanks for your help! D

RE: Listing:
I'd like to say that all sealants are created equal, but they really just aren't. I have been using Deco Art's Americana Spray Sealer on my projects for well over 7 years now, and have never been disappointed. They are non-yellowing, so you don't have to worry about your treasured pieces turning a funky color years down the road. They simply stay beautiful. And, it comes in a Matte or a Gloss, so its your choice. I love them! I think you will too!
Until the next time I think about something! Lol
