Q-tip review and project
I was provided with Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swabs, a $25 American Express gift card and information about the product by Rocket XL. All opinions are 100% my own.
Have you guys seen the new precision tip Q-Tips? They are awesome! Not just for cleaning gunk out of your ears-for crafty purposes as well! They come to a point at each end which is super useful for make-up, gluing tiny things together, or just using them to paint! Which is what I did!
First I painted some small canvases with a few coats of craft paint (and a foam brush, lol I wasn't about to paint the whole thing with the Q-tips!)
Then I traced my design with pencil lightly.
Then I used the tip of a Q-tip to outline the birdie. (Put a bird on it!)
Then I used the tip to dab little dots of paint, concentrating them around the edges. Really easy!
I also painted this feather free-hand (which I ended up liking better than the birdie), and the Q-tips work great for that kind of painting as well. What's nice, is I could grab a new Q-tip whenever I needed one and didn't need to worry about washing off a brush.
Make sure to check out the Q-tips Facebook page where you can find $1 off any purchase of two boxes of Q-tips Cotton swabs or Precision Tips, 170 count or larger.
