Animal Planet Fridge Magnet Set

Postby royjess » Tue Apr 07, 2020 9:26 pm

I have a small collection of Fridge Magnets.

It all really started a few years ago with this Alton Towers Jigsaw magnet set

and built up to this

On one of our regular visit to our local Zoo last year, we saw a set of fridge magnets kit which was a special price of £2 when you purchase any other item from the shop.

The contents contained the paint, moulds, plaster of paris and instructions

Mixed up the plaster of paris

filled the moulds, (the photo shows the moulds semi filled, but I did pour more plaster into the moulds)

I gently tap the mould to get rid of any air bubbles. I left the plaster to dry for 24 hours before I removed the plaster shapes. I turned them over and gave them another 24 hours to dry.

They didn't come our perfect. there were some imperfections which I filled in using green putty.

I'm going to let the green stuff set before I paint. I won't be using the paint that came with the set, I'm hoping to use my airbrush with my Vallejo paint.

Nice collection. I used to collect a fridge magnet from each holiday or trip, then we moved into a flat with a stainless steel fridge :angry-banghead:
Cheers

Have you tried using a magnetic white memo board to display them?

Today I glued the magnets to the rear, only then did I discover that the magnets weren't all that powerful, so I'm going to see if I've got some more powerful ones to replace these.
