In Altered Milk Tins Sakura Hobby Craft

Dress Form Altered Milk Tin

Hello!  Today I would like to share with you my Dress Form Altered Milk tin.

For todays project I used the products below:

Sakura Milk Tin
Pink Acrylic Paint
Crayola Air Dry Clay
3D Crystal Lacquer
Cameo Silicone Mold
StazOn Ink

I prepped my milk tin by painting it with white gesso. Then I made a dress form out of air dry clay and placed it on top of my milk tin lid making sure I could still use my lid to take on and off my milk tin. She is a little lumpy and bumpy but I will be covering her.

I let that dry overnight and painted it all pink the next day.

I also decided to make her a hat.


 With my stamps I used un-mounted stamps so I could follow the curve of the tin. If they had been mounted on wood or acrylic blocks it would have been harder to stamp. I stamped with Black StazOn Ink all around the tin.

 Here is the back of the tin all painted and stamped.

 I made a cameo with my silicone mold and poured crystal lacquer into the mold. When it was dry I painted it white.
 My mold had a trim on the cameo that I cut off with scissors. (the trim was originally made with Sakura colored lacquer.) I wasn't sure I was going to use it or not but it looked better without the trim.
 Next it was time to play dress up with my dress form. I used lace pieces that I sewed a simple straight stitch to make her dress. I glued her lace on the top of her hat.

 This is the back of the tin/dress form.

 Here is the cameo I placed on her waist.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. You can get your own products from

In Blog Hop Sakura Terri Sproul Vintage Mermaid Plaque

Vintage Mermaid Plaque

Hi all! Welcome to the 2013 Sakura Fantasy Blog Hop!
Continue with our blog hop for your chance to win
2 Bottles of Sakura Crystal Lacquer!
All you have to do is
1.  Subscribe to each blog on the hop as a follower
2.   Leave a comment on each blog and that's it!
 For todays project the materials I used are:
Wooden Plaque
Sakura Crystal Lacquer
Terri Sproul Shimmer Mixers
White Gesso
Image of choice -
 I colored my image with Copic Markers
Stencils (MS and homemade ones)
Molding Paste
Teflon Craft Sheet
Painters Tape
Background Stamp
StazOn Ink/Ranger Distress Inks/tool
Spellbinders Die/Big Shot
First thing I did was color my image with my Copic Markers.
Then I prepped my wood plaque with white gesso and let dry.
 I stamped my background stamp with StazOn Ink
so it wouldn't smear or run.

Next I wanted to cut out my image with Spellbinders die
but as you can see my image is too big for the die..

So, I traced around my image with the die where
I wanted the die to cut.

Then I cut (with scissors)  the part of the image that was sticking
out of the traced lines.  I lifted my image over the die
so as to only cut around my image without cutting off the bottom
when I ran it through my Big Shot

After it was cut with my spellbinder die I used
Ranger Distress Ink /w Distress Tool to color the edges of my image.
I prepared a mixture of Crystal Lacquer and Terri Sproul
Shimmer Mixers making my Lacquer translucent enough to
see my background image on my plaque.
Then I set it aside for a moment while I added some texture.

I decided to add some texture with Molding Paste and MS Stencils.
Here I even added some Shimmer Mixers to the Molding Paste.

Then I added texture with my
homemade stencil (made from packaging)

After it was completely dry I covered the entire
plaque with my colored Crystal Lacquer. (prepared earlier)
making sure I got into all the crevasses.  

With my left over Lacquer I added more
Terri Sproul mixers to make a deeper blue
and dripped the Lacquer onto my craft sheet
and let them dry.

While that was drying I coated my image with
Clear 3D Crystal Lacquer.
I taped down my image on the edges to help prevent curling.

After It was dry I put it all together,
using my drips as embellishments (to resemble air bubbles) 
I used Crystal Lacquer to glue my pieces down.

Here she is on my wall

In Altered Milk Tins Crystal Lacquer Sakura

Vintage Altered Milk Tin

Hi! Today I am going to show you how
I altered my milk tin. The list of supplies I used are:

Sakura Hobby Craft Milk Tins
Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer
Terri Sproul Shimmer Mixers
Adirondack Metallics Paint Dauber Gold
Vintage Graphics Printed from Laser Printer
Mod Podge
White Gesso
From now until the end of May you can get 20% off
your entire order with the code" Sakura05"
First I painted my tin with white gesso.
 Then I printed my Vintage Pictures Inverted
so when I Mod Podge my picture face down it would be a mirror image.


Next I Took a foam applicator and applied them to my milk tin
Then I placed my image face down onto my tin.
I did not mod podge after application as I did not
want a resist from the mod podge when I colored the tin.
When completely dry I soaked down the paper
with water and rubbed off the paper, creating a
transferred image with only ink remaining on my tin.
And as you can see my inverted picture is now facing the right way.
As I keep rubbing off the wet paper my image becomes clear.

I did the same method to my second image.
I mixed up some shimmer mixers from
Terri Sproul with water and binder powder.

Then I painted and drizzled down my tin and added some
gold paint rubbed in with my fingers until I was happy.

Then I took a rag and cleaned off my image
and cleaned the can a bit by rubbing it with a cloth.
Next I started to place my lace and embellishments.
 I used 3D Crystal Lacquer as well as hot glue. 
Here I made a flower embellishment with a piece of
 lace gathered and I used 3D Crystal Lacquer to adhere it with a pearl center.
 And the final photo..
 I hope you enjoyed todays tutorial and don't forget 
With Coupon Code  Sakura05 you can get 20% off your order!
for the entire month of May.
