Steps to Make This:

  1. Start by applying alcohol inks on the foam brush, just a few drops will do, on Grafix Matte Dura-Lar Film.
  2. Add a few drops of isopropyl alcohol to the film.
  3. Take the saturated foam brush and drag it across the Matte Dura-Lar Film. (You can add more alcohol if the brush starts drying up).
  4. Add additional drops of alcohol ink in random spots, use a micro-applicator to create smaller dots.
  5. Repeat the process with different colors.
  6. Cut out triangles the same size, using a die or scissors. (There should be a total of 20 triangles. This project features four colors, five triangles in each color).
  7. Arrange the triangles to form this polyhedron pattern with 20 faces, see image. (This shape is called an icosahedron).
  8. Use Grafix Double Tack Mounting Film to stick all the triangle edges.
  9. Then fold each triangle inwards to score the adhesive.
  10. Next, stick the remaining triangle edges together.
  11. Before closing the icosahedron, place the fairy lights inside the design.
  12. Make sure to stick the fairy lights to the Double Tack Mounting Film on the inside of the icosahedron.
  13. Finish by closing the icosahedron.
