Custom Design Paper Magnet
Paper Casting Project
Give a unique gift to your kids and grandkids
to celebrate their birthdays!
Custom 3" stamp we made for our granddaughter's birth.
Clear acrylic varnish
Acrylic paints (we used light blue, medium blue, red)
1 small magnet (from craft store)
1. When paper casting is dry apply a light coat of varnish to seal the
casting from moisture (so it will not swell and lose the design when
paint is applied). Apply a light 2nd coat of varnish and let dry.
Note: You may also apply varnish to the back of the casting for more
permanence. Variation: Apply varnish only to the design and leave the outside edge unvarnished.
2. Apply paints to casting, one color at a time, and let dry between coats so that colors don't run together.
Optional: Apply a light coat of spray varnish to seal in paint. Let dry. Apply a
2nd coat of varnish if desired for more sturdiness. Let dry.
4. Glue magnet to back of casting and let dry.
