Posted by DecoArt on May 4th 2016

Here's a wall plaque with character and color compliments of Americana® Multi-Surface Acrylics.


    • sandpaper
    • scissors
    • pencil
    • flat brush
    • hot glue gun and glue sticks
    • scrapbook paper
    • craft knife
    • feathers
    • wooden plaque
    • E6000 Glue
    • round brush
    • flamingo



    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    1. Paint the sides of the wooden plaque in pink using a flat brush.
    2. Instruction #1
    3. Trace and trim a piece of flower-patterned scrapbook paper to fit the front of the plaque and use Paper Decou-Page to adhere it onto the plaque.
    4. Instruction #2
    5. Gently sand the edges of the paper to remove any excess paper. With a round brush, touch up the edges of the sanded paper in pink.
    6. Instruction #3
    7. Use a craft knife to cut into the base of the neck of the plastic flamingo. (The plastic is thin and easy to cut; just be careful!)
    8. Instruction #4
    9. Paint the flamingo's neck and head in pink or desired color.
    10. Instruction #5
    11. Paint the beak and eyes in white. Let dry. Once dry, paint the end of the beak in black and a dot of black onto each eye.
    12. Instruction #6
    13. Attach the neck onto the plaque with E6000 Glue. (I use a bit of hot glue to hold the piece in place while the E6000 dries.)
    14. Instruction #7
    15. Hot glue feathers around the base of the neck.
    16. Instruction #8
