Fuzzy Yarn Technique
July 3, 2012
We’re in love with this fuzzy yarn technique, and we think you will be too!
What You’ll Need:
- Bisque: Vase (any shape)
- Colors: Butter, Lima Bean, and TurtleTools: paint brush, sponge, fuzzy yarn
First, coat your vase by alternating patches of Lima Bean and Butter paint. Apply a second coat.
Next, cut and wrap a 3 ft strand of fuzzy yarn around the outside of your vase, taping the ends on the bottom or inside of your vase…
Paint a THIRD layer of Lima Bean and Butter paint overtop of the fuzzy yarn. This will help the little strings sticking out lay flat onto your piece. Allow to dry (paint will loose it’s glossiness and be dry to the touch).
Sponge two layers of your darkest color (ie. Turtle) overtop. Allow to dry.
Lastly, peel up your yarn (start unwrapping in the same place where you finished wrapping) and see your design!
If you would like more instruction on how to do this technique (and variations of it), a trained staff member will be available on Thursday, June 12th from 6-8pm at each All Fired Up location (Carytown, Midlothian, and Short Pump) to answer all of your questions and guide you through the process!
