Ok, so see that picture?? That’s what I wanted to do. I was going to paint them, coat them, clean them and then use them as cake toppers on top of cupcakes. Easy Peasy and oh so Cheap. Right?
Not Right… ugh..
So I love to craft. My only problem is that something either comes out awesome or awful. There isn’t an in between for me.
So today, I was planning on spray painting some dollar store dinosaurs for an upcoming birthday party with Krylon Twilight glitter spray. It’s a really dark blue color with some purple flecks.
I tested it on one which came out beautiful.
After checking it over, I went in for the set, also grabbed a couple lackluster blue tree ornaments i had bought on sale last year.
I set down the plastic and spray over everything with a good coat. Happy with it, I stopped to wait for them to dry before flipping them over do the other side.
Except the spray can wouldn’t stop spraying.. it just kept going. I tried to pull up a little on the cap which came off spewing more stuff directly into the air like a bug bomb. Ugh! So I put the cap back on, but it’s just spitting the clear stuff at me so I can’t even use it.
Now I have a bunch of half decorated ornaments and dinosaurs. Of course, there is no other paint in the house to fix it.
I probably shouldn’t care but for whatever reason, this was the ONLY package of dinosaurs in the two closest dollar stores!
I’m afraid of spraying over these in case they come out blotchy… or lumpy??
So, then I dumped them in warm water and manually started scraping the paint off….. No, this won’t be time consuming at all.
And actually, after reading the reviews on Amazon of the paint, I’m super pissed that these people are allowed to sell it. I mean, they had to use it, so I am sure they understood how crappy a product this probably was and said…. EFF it, if we sell a few thousand and people have to throw it away… well, that’s still more money than we would have made just scrapping the whole thing…
But really, I had the exact same problems they did, so this isn’t a fluke issue.
To the people that made and marketed this sub-par product:
So, at least, let me post a picture of a recent craft that came out well.
And I’m going to go with Stitch Witchery for being an AWESOME product.
