The theme for this month is Seaside and our MDF kit is this lovely Seahorse. I was very excited to start designing this project and all the embellishments just made me even more exited!

When the Stone Art is dry rub all the excess off and place it in a separate container to use for another project. Pour Powertex Ivory into a bowl. Pre-measure the rope around the edges of the Seahorse to make sure its not to long or to short. Paint a strip around the edge and dip the rope into the PowerteX Ivory and drape it around the edges of the Seahorse making sure you press it into the Stone Art.
Use Powertex Ivory to paint over the Stone Art and then dip the MDF embellishments into the Powertex Ivovy and arrange them onto the Seahorse. Pour some 3D Sand and balls in some areas and leave to dry (I used a hairdryer on cold and low to speed up the process) Paint another layer over the 3D sand and balls to secure them onto the Seahorse.
Use Bister Yellow, Blue and Red to spritz some areas with colour, as desired. Then mix Colourtrix Blue with Easycoat glossy and apply it onto the 3D Balls using a dry brush technique. Use some Easycoat glossy and Glue the eye on. I also used Colourtrix Rich Gold to highlight the shells and the MDF embellishments. More embellishments can be added anytime. I used a little glass bottle with a note and 3D sand in it to complete my Seaside September Seahorse. This project will dry quickly to touch and will harden in a few days. If you wait for this Seahorse to cure fully for 3 weeks it can
I had so much fun design and creating this project,
but I feel there’s something missing…
