Stenciled Linen Tea Towels

Posted On: 17th of November, 2020
Posted In: DIY Projects


We were in need of a little unique gift idea for family so we decided to turn some iPad drawings from our two year old into tea towel designs.

Materials
Stencil Film
Xacto Knife
Linen Tea Towel (we used Off White)
MTN Water Based spray paint (we used AZO Orange Pale, Naphthol Red, Blue Green Dark, Blue Green Pale)

We took some scribbles from the iPad, but could just as easily be from paper, and cut them into 6 separate stencils. We used acetate stencil film so we could reuse them a quite a few times.

We pre washed the linen tea towel to soften them an remove the starchy coating to ensure the paint adhered well.

We placed the separate stencils on the tea towel, changing the position and colour each time so each tea towel was unique. Ww waited a few minutes between each stencil so they are touch dry. We used the Water Based cans which are great if kids are helping or you are using indoors. Our other paint ranges also work.

After the paint is completely dry (we gave it a few hours), we ironed the design with a hot iron with no steam for a few minutes to set the paint.

Noongar Counting Blocks

Posted On: 3rd of April, 2020
Posted In: DIY Projects

When we learned how to count from keny to maar-maar in Noongar we were fascinated by the number structure and created this set of Montessori inspired blocks to help learn the numbers. We have included the instructions below for an easy make at home educational toy for these Stay at Home times we find ourselves in.

MATERIALS
• 1x 30x30mm square piece of wood, at least 1.7m long - the piece we purchased was a 2.4m length in pine
• 1x Drawstring Calico Bag
• 1x Can MTN Gesso Primer
• 2x Stylefile Markers in your chosen colours (for decorating the bag)
• 10x MTN Water Based Spraypaint in your chosen colours
• 1x MTN Water Based Paint Marker in your chosen colour (should contrast all paint colours)
• 1x MTN Water Based Spraypaint Clear Matte Varnish


CUT THE WOOD
• 2x 30mm in length (keny)
• 6x 60mm in length (koodjal)
• 2x 90mm in length (daambart)
• 7x 150mm in length (maar)

Sand any rough edges ready for painting.

DECORATE THE BAG
• Slip a piece of cardboard in the bag to prevent the markers bleeding through to the back side
• Using the Stylefile Markers trace 1 of each of the 4 length blocks and write the corresponding name
- do this before you paint the blocks incase you get any marker on them
- we used dark brown to trace the blocks and black to write the names

INSTRUCTIONS
• Print the last page of the below PDF
• Cut in half and tack with glue back to back
• Laminate

PRIME THE BLOCKS
Paint the raw wood with a primer to seal the wood and prevent the coloured paint soaking in and looking uneven. We used MTN Gesso Primer which is a thick covering water based primer with no harsh solvents.

PAINT THE BLOCKS
You will need to put the puzzle together and paint each number in a different colour. Some numbers are created with 1 block, and some are made up of 2 or 3 blocks. We have listed the numbers below with the MTN Water Based Spraypaint colours we used and the block sizes needed.
Keny - Titanium Light - 30
Koodjal - Grey Green Dark - 60
Daambart - Raw Umber - 90
Koodjal-Koodjal - Grey Green Pale - 60 60
Maar - Yellow Ochre - 150
Maar-Keny - Raw Umber Deep - 150 30
Maar-Koodjal - Naples Yellow Deep - 150 60
Maar-Daambart - Grey Green - 150 90
Maar-Koodjal-Koodjal - Burnt Umber - 150 60 60
Maar-Maar - Grey Green Deep - 150 150

MARK YOUR STARTING POINTS
• Put the blocks together as per the instructions and diagram on the next page
• With your paint marker, mark a visible dot on the left end of each row

VARNISH YOUR BLOCKS
We added a final coat of varnish to help protect our block set. We used MTN Water Based Spraypaint in Matte Varnish.
