I’m crazy about Dimensional Magic lately, and I’m using on everything. So you’re gonna have to bear with me; I hope I won’t burn you out. But I just had to show you how it can be used on stuff other than jewelry. This Dimensional Magic frame is super easy (hello beginners!), and the kicker is that thee DM is on the wood accent piece in the center. You may have to enlarge the photo to see the detail, but the raised, epoxy looks really neat in real life. Who is that charming little one in the frame? You’ll just have to guess. In the meantime, here are the project instructions.
Gather These Supplies
Plain wood frame
Mod Podge Satin
Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
FolkArt Acrylic Paint – Aqua, Parchment
Scrapbook paper – 1 sheet, I used American Crafts Hello Sunshine Splendor
Craft knife and mat
I love these Michaels frames. They are only $1! You could do a wall of them for so cheap.
Flip the paper, design side down, and trace the frame onto it with your paper.
Cut the paper – I always use a craft knife on the inside piece.
Paint your wood accent with the color of your choice. I used Aqua. I hope you are super impressed with my photo “skillz” as I focus on my fingers rather than the wood piece. Allow to dry.
Paint your frame edges and back with Parchment and allow to dry.
I have a secret, which is that I love Satin Mod Podge. It’s my favorite finish – it’s the same finish as the Hard Coat, except the Hard Coat is super duper tough for heavily used items. Regular Satin Mod Podge works since this frame is meant to be displayed rather than beat up. Give your frame a few coats of Podge and allow to dry.
Apply Dimensional Magic to the wood accent. One thing I LOVE about DM is that it has great surface tension – meaning, it stays where you put it (as long as you don’t squeeze too much out). My #1 tip for DM is that it likes to dry in a warm place. I always put it on top of the stove and away from the windows. If it gets cold, it will crack.
Glue your wood piece to the front of your frame, put in a picture and you are ready to roll. Hello to an inexpensive gift idea.
