Sharpie brush tip marker

With this new brush tip Sharpie markers we can create fine or bold lines and use it for shading.    
Children and Adults will enjoy using these permanent markers in a variety of surfaces such as posters, notebooks, helmets, skateboards, bicycles and signs etc. to express their artistic flare.

My children and I enjoyed designing these tea light candles.  It was easy to use, so we had lots of fun creating these unique designs within a few minutes.

We painted this ceramic pot easily without leaving a mess to clean :) so I am looking forward to do more projects with these markers.

To paint this pot, we need
Sharpie brush tip markers*
clay or ceramic pot
and your imagination :)

Use the markers to paint on the pot, the tip changes to the pressure we put in our hands.  Although it dries really fast, try not to touch the painted surface right away as you paint to avoid smudges.
*The markers are available at Staples, Walmart, Real Canadian superstore, DeSerres in packages of 4 and 8.

If you would like to win these Sharpie products and express yourself please leave a comment on this post before August 5th.  Open to Canadian readers.

Fun with Jake and the Never Land pirates

Ahoy! Mates,

Jake and the Never Land pirates: Peter Pan returns is available on DVD since April 3rd; it has over 2 hours of special features.
This story is about Peter Pan's missing shadow. While Peter was playing the game Catch-me-if-you-can, he looses his shadow and Captain hook takes it. He goes to ask his friend Jake's help. His friends Izzy, Cubby and parrot Skully join to work as a team to find Peter's shadow. Peter needed his shadow to fly so he had to get it back from captain hook.
This is a lovely movie with lots of songs to keep the children entertained while you are doing some spring cleaning and catching up :)
Painting egg shells. This could be a lovely activity for anytime of the year. To make these Pirate eggs we need to remove the inside yolk and white. First shake the egg carefully, then use a sharp skewer or fork and pierce the narrow end of the egg. Make the pierced part a little big, place a bowl and invert the egg to remove the inside and save it for cooking.
Wash and let the eggshell dry upside down.
We painted these eggshells using sharpie markers.
To make holders
Cut a strip of light board or construction paper about 1" wide, for the length measure the circumference of one side of the egg.
Decorate the strip.
Then slit 1/2" on one corner of the strip from the top and for the other corner cut from the bottom 1/2" (click on the above picture and look closer).
The slits should go into each other and attach.

Sharpie fabric paint

Sharpie® has launched a new product Stained by Sharpie, which is a marker to paint on fabric.
It is a brush tip with fabric ink that creates thick and thin lines. Ink is AP-certified and non-toxic. The paint doesn't fade on most fabric when washed on a normal wash cycle. It is suggested for best results the clothes stained by the markers should be hang to dry. There are eight vibrant colours sold individually and in packs of 4 and 8.
They could have added 2 more colours white and brown :)

Here is a design I painted on my daughter's shirt. All I had to do is keep a pad of paper under the shirt, so it doesn't stain the back of the shirt and paint on it. There was no need to iron or do any other step after painting. It was so easy that we are planning on colouring more fabric.

It makes it so much easier to personalize fabric items with these markers i.e. sending things to school and trips.
So get a hold of these cool Stained by Sharpie markers, and express yourself by turning your everyday items to something special anytime anywhere.

In April Sharpie and MuchMusic will team up to inspire and showcase Canadian Sharpie creations.

To win a prize pack $50 worth of products from Sharpie® please leave a comment on this post and tell me what would you do with these markers. The giveaway is open for everyone in Canada and ends on March 15th.
