CREATIVE CHALLENGE – DAY ONE

CUSTOMISE YOUR KEYS

I’ve set this as day number one because you’ve all seen this project all over Pinterest I’m sure! “Colour code your keys using nail polish”. It’s super easy and a good starter project, but I do have some useful tips!

► When I was doing this project, I was in a big open room (The Makers Hub) but it still go a bit fumey, so if you can, I’d do this one outside.

► The polish looks nice and domed when you put it on and then dries flatter, showing up the texture of the key. You probably want to do several coats, or coat in a few layers of clear polish at the end if you want it really nice and glossy. This adds to the total time for the project, so you might go over 30 minutes (on the first day! omg)

► I had a lot of fun with these the more I did, each one turned into a little mini artwork, so make sure you have lots of keys on hand to practice with!

► Some of them also turned out a bit lame, but hey, they still look nicer than a boring plain key, so it’s all good!

Let’s get started!
