Fun Springtime Project with Patio Paints

This fun stepping stone is available as a free pattern and can be completed in a short time - it would be a great project to do outside in the sunshine! It uses five colours of Americana Patio Paint (Fern Green, Pine Green, Sunshine Yellow, Cloud White, Wrought Iron Black) and a finish of Clear Coat. You can browse other DecoArt free project plans on their site - there are many other projects for Patio Paint.

Featuring the Flora Brushes from Loew Cornell!

These new brushes from Loew Cornell are multi-talented!
For an informative demonstration view Gisele Pope's YouTube video - it's quick and fun to watch. She shows how to paint flowers with two different techniques (plus leaves) all using one brush. The Flora brush has a uniquely tapered tip making fine detailing and painting botanicals easy. Stockade offers the #2 and #6 Brushes.

Welcome to Stockade's Blog!

With this blog we plan to bring you crafty projects, inspirations and much, much more! There are many crafty people at Stockade who have a wealth of ideas and information - a blog seemed like the perfect place to share these ideas with you. Here we will also post links to online free project tutorials and ideas that are just too fabulous to keep to ourselves.

Our first spotlight for a great resource for craft ideas is the blog One Pretty Thing. This inspiring site is updated daily and contains all sorts of craft links (Stockade's painted peg people were mentioned last month!).
