How to Use Lemon Acrylics For Your Lemon Themed Party
Step into summer with a celebration filled with bright and lemony accents! Adding this summer fruit to your next party, wedding, or bridal shower is a refreshing way to celebrate the seasonal change.
A great way to incorporate those small details of lemons is to create your very own acrylic signs with UNIQOOO’s lemon acrylic place cards. This is an easy, fun, DIY idea that anyone can achieve to decorate your summer party!
UNIQOOO’s Lemon Acrylic Place Cards are blank which makes it perfect to personalize them and use as seating escort cards, name tags, wedding favors, mini food signs, and more! You can use any water or oil-based pen to write directly on the cards and you can easily wipe them off with some acetone. You can also write names with a laser machine.
How to Paint Acrylics
Painting on acrylic can be a little tricky at first, but not at all impossible to achieve. All it takes is a steady hand, some patience, and some good paint pens.
Here are the different ways to create your signs:
If you want to add a colored background to your writing, choose a high quality acrylic paint such as Martha Stewarts’s Acrylic Craft Paint, FolkArt Multi-Surface Acrylic Paint by PLAID, or Deco Art American Series Acrylic Paint. Remember, if you choose to have a colored background, you must write your text on the front since you’ll be painting the back.
If you only want to add text to these place cards without the background color, write with a good paint pen! Smooth and beautiful writing always adds elegance to the décor. The thicker tip paint pens are great for bold numbers and designs.
A helpful tip- if you really want your designs to pop, opt for a metallic paint pen!
Nib & Ink
For those who prefer fine lettering, you may want to opt for ink. You can write much smaller lines than markers and it also adds a touch of elegance to your work. Calligraphy ink works best with our acrylic place cards.
If you’re thinking about reusing these lemon acrylic place cards, you can remove most mediums with soap, water, or Windex. It takes a bit of patience and scrubbing to remove the medium, as long as you don’t scratch the paint off, your lemon acrylic place cards will be as good as new!
Now that we’ve got you set up for your summer lemon-themed party, all you need to do is the creative part! Figure out where to place these cards around your venue and show off your handwriting and designs to your friends and guests! We’re sure that they’ll love these touches.
