Our DohVinci Art Class House Party & Giveaway

DohVinci from the makers of Hasbro's Play-Doh comes a new, customizable craft kit that allows our children to have complete control...without the mess! It is very easy to use; all we have to do is insert the deco pop into the styler, close the styler and start creating fun designs. This type of deco is fun for anyone. The best thing is it is easy to clean up, which was awesome when I hosted the DOH VINCI Art Class House Party.
The deco pop design compound sticks to many different surfaces, including wood, glass and plastic. During our house party children got busy decorating on a variety of surfaces. DohVinci lets everyone's creativity pop off everything they decorated. This craft is quite addictive not only for children, but also for adults.
I like that DohVinci allows children to have unparalleled freedom of expression and creativity to design in 3D. DohVinci is easy to do, fun, non-prescriptive, forgivable, customizable, and not at all messy; making it a wonderful kit to do at get-togethers. 
There are inspiring videos on Youtube.com/dohvinci to help us learn basic techniques, tips and tricks. At our house party we gave each of the children their own booklet that quickly inspired them to create a variety of designs.
I set up the table so our guests had a variety to nibble on whenever they wanted something.
We had a refreshing watermelon drink, crackers, fruits, vegetables with dip, and our favourite cornflakes muffins.
My daughter decorated this DohVinci Style and Store Vanity Design Kit a day prior to the party. I also practiced some decorating skills on this kit to become familiar on how to use it before our guests arrived. The kit came with a Styler tool to decorate the mirror and drawer set. The kit also included the five-piece vanity with mirror, add-on flourishes, wavy shaped design tip, two-sided edging tool, four DECO POP colours, and inspiration guide. 
Once the design dried, my daughter has kept her favourite things like costume jewelry, notes and precious items inside it.
Highlights of the projects from the party and projects we created...
We used...
The Deluxe Styler tool that comes with four unique interchangeable design tips to make a star, heart, flower, or butterfly shape. 
The Deco Pops that come in 4 vibrant colours; the “Warm” collection includes Red-iculous, Wink at me Pink, Pop of Purple, and On the Loose Chartreuse. And 4 “Cool” collection colours Hip ‘n Happy Green, Oh My Orchid Purple, You Blue My Mind and Get Real Teal.
The process was the same for all the projects...

  1. Each child chose a DECO POP colour they liked. 
  2. Popped the colour into the Styler. 
  3. Aimed, Squeezed and Designed.

    1. Hi Julia
      You can get the decor items at craft stores and dollar stores. You will need a styler for each person unless they take turns or work in small groups. The stylers are reusable by loading the colour containers. The colours can be shared among children, they come in packs of four. You can get a pack for each person plus a couple extra. Hope this helps enjoy the party
