The hardest thing is peeling off designs that have lots of thin edges and details (especially big ones) because the art will stick to itself, and it doesn't come undone. If you put it in the freezer, you can usually get it unstuck, though.
We have thought of so many things we can do with this. We decorated our back door with flowers for spring, and we'll put up fall leaves for fall.
This is a great, easy craft project that has a really neat end product.
The book contains many window art templates, colored ink stuff (see pic0, and tear-out plastic sheets. The idea is to cover the templates included in the book with the plastic sheet, then start tracing the outlines with the stuff from the black ink bottle. Then comes the first of two difficult steps in the process - waiting several hours for the black outline to dry! After it is dried, you can fill in the rest of the picture with the colored inky stuff from the other bottles - then wait again for it to dry.
Here are some tips we found online and through experimentation:
- Put the plastic sheet with the completed window art in the freezer for a few seconds before removing the art from the sheet. The cold temp will make the artwork harden, and this will allow an easier release from the plastic.
- After placing the art on a window, you can remove the artwork from the glass to reposition it, but repeatedly doing so will create gaps and holes. Hold an ice pack on the design for a few seconds to harden it slightly for easier removal.
- Be generous with the filler inky stuff because when it dries, there will be some shrinkage and too little of the filler will create holes.
- You can use all sorts of designs as templates including coloring book pages and clip art. We made several Hello Kitty window art by using a Sanrio coloring book as a template. Cool!Read more ›
My only quibble is that this activity really eats up the paint since essentially you build a wall with black outlining paint then fill it in with the colored paint. Expecting to run through paint quickly from reading other reviews, I bought a refill set along with the book at the onset. Still, we used up all our black outlining paint (and much of the rest of the paint as well) in an afternoon, making maybe a dozen clings.
Turns out that we so like making window art and so enjoy the results that I'm regularly buying more paint. In fact, right now we're waiting for the fanatic pack to arrive along with a spare extra large bottle of the black outlining paint. (And I already wish I'd ordered more black than that!)
So, I'd highly recommend this product, but warn that you'll be buying lots and lots of extra paint, so you should probably order a refill or two while you're ordering the book. It's worth it, though, and I can't imagine anybody who wouldn't enjoy making window art so much that they wouldn't want more paint.
