1 March - Decorate a Freestanding MDF Flower in a Pot (For Mother’s Day)

Gillian suggests your child uses colouring pens to decorate their project. Any of these pens would be suitable:
Felt tip pens - preferably broadline (bigger tip)
Paint pens (Posca pens or similar)
Copic pens/sharpies/promarkers or any similar pen

The kit includes:
  • the mdf base (the best mum words are optional to use)
  • 10g glitter
  • 100ml varnish to seal the project
  • an assortment of crystal art gems for embellishing
  • 50 ml glue

Your child will need a decent sized work area covered with newspaper (or similar).  Big enough to store the smaller elements of the project as we go.

They will need a brush to apply the glue and varnish.  It's best if, once these brushes have been used that they are washed/cleaned straight away so that they don’t are not  ruined.

Once the project has been glued together it needs to be left to dry overnight before the varnish is applied.

When applying the varnish please make sure that your child does not overload the brush as excess will run down the project.  Once varnished the project will need to be left overnight until it is completely dry.


If you are a home educator, but can't make these sessions or don't think they would meet your child's needs, please email us or call us on 01297 691362 to discuss what else we can offer you.
