PURPOSE: To enable individuals to create simulated braille on ornaments. Fabric paint applied to die-cut ornaments creates a tactile image. Using a Simulated Braille Technique (see entry), a braille message can be added to the ornament. Required supplies include die-cut shapes of craft foam or flat shapes of other stiff materials, soap flakes, corn syrup, tempera paint, hole punch, and ribbon or yarn. Punch a hole in the top of each shape to hold a ribbon or yarn hanger. Use one of the following methods to add a tactile design or message to the shape: (1) Mix one part tempera paint with one part light corn syrup to create the consistency of whipped egg whites or (2) mix tempera paint with soap flakes to make a paste. Using a paintbrush or fingers, dab the mixture on the die-cut shape to create an ineresting textured surface or use the Simulated Braille Technique to add words or a message. The hanging ornament can be converted to a stick-up or a magnet by adding double-stick or magnetic tape to the back. TITLE: Take This All as a Gift! (in Springboard). AUTHOR: Jill B.
