Meanwhile, at the bottom of the sea…

We know how much you love the beach and all the summer adventures it brings, so we have a new craft idea for you.

Introducing texture paste – a lovely thick, creamy material you can use to create layers and three-dimensional images. We crafted the water and the ocean floor from it, using the pictured tools, and added colour on top with acrylic paints once dry. The tiny broom provided our make-believe seaweed, and the bubbles and sand are just tiny glass beads, incorporated in the background (make sure to do it before it dries).

You can add colorful fish and other sea creatures, a buried treasure or a message in a bottle like we did – just stick them on the wet texture paste, no glue needed.

We put our underwater landscape in a box frame.
