Hello blogging friends! I have some exciting news to share with everyone. I am going to be working with and designing for a new company. The company is U-Paint Metal Crafts and they have over 300 U-Paint Metal Craft Kits to choose from. The metal pieces are designed for all Designers, Artists, Makers, DIY Crafters/Hobbyists. The detail on the designs is so beautiful! I have some pictures to share of the metal pieces including some of the solid brass deco trim strips and bookmarks. The U-Paint Metal Crafts line was developed and launched last year to present to the Craft Industry at a retail level. U-Paint Metal Crafts is under a larger company The Frank Morrow Company that has been in business since 1929!
Now for the really great news---Everything is made in the U.S.A.!
Ok, now that we have all of the "business" out of the way lets take a look at the beautiful designs from U-Paint Metal Crafts.
Here is a look at one of the large kits.
This is the Butterflies kit and below are the dimensions for each piece.
Dragonfly (4 3/8″ H x 5 7/8″ W)
Butterfly (3 3/4″ H x 5 1/4″ W)
Swallowtail Moth (5 3/4″ H x 4 1/2″ W)
Art Deco Butterfly – Solid (2.875″ H x 4.75″ W)
Each kit comes in a large zipper bag which is great for storage.
Here is a look at the back side of the packaging.
The metal pieces come in large and small kits. You can also purchase them individually. This image includes L--to--R: Garden Sprite, Garden Trellis, Flower Bouquet, Roses Blooming, Hummingbird.
Here is a close up of the Flower Bouquet so you can see all of the amazing detail.
This image includes metal pieces from the Butterflies kit and the Herbs Kit. I absolutely love all of the detail in the butterflies!
Check out these beautiful bookmarks! The bookmarks have vintage designs from the 1920's - 1950's. The one on the top is the Rose & Leaf Scroll and the bottom one is Swirling Leaves. The detail on the bookmarks is amazing!
Be still my heart---Oh these decorative trims are beyond gorgeous!! I can't wait to create with these! So many possibilities my mind is spinning lol.
From the top down this image includes the following.
I think working with the U-Paint Metal Crafts is going to be so much fun and this is their very first Creative Team! You can apply paint, glitter, stains, gilding, embellishment mousse, tints and all different kind of products to make the designs uniquely yours. You can custom design the pieces to match your home decor. The pieces can also be used as molds for clay and you can use some of the bookmarks to emboss beautiful designs on your paper crafts. The brass can be cut, sanded, and shaped for jewelry so I am very excited to try designing some jewelry with those pieces.
