How To Create: Dot-A-Lot Dimensional Craft Paints

OOLY’s DIY Dot-A-Lot Dimensional Craft Paints allow you to create & decorate multi-surface projects with bright and dazzling results. These easy-to-follow suggestions will help you start creating right away.

Make the Workspace Ready

Start with a clean work space, always a good idea when starting a new project. Before laying out your supplies; you may want to cover your workspace with paper or a plastic cloth. Dot-A-Lot dimensional paints are intended for more seasoned crafters and not for anyone under 6 years of age, and we do suggest adult supervision.   

Pro Tip: If you think the project will not be completed in one sitting; either use a space that won’t be disturbed or do the project on a tray, cardboard or something that can be moved without affecting the supplies. Your project will take 24 hours to dry so you put it somewhere it won’t be disturbed.

Choose Your Dot-A-Lot Dimensional Craft Paint Colors

Pro Tip: Practice with the bottle on a blank sheet of paper before starting on your object. You can squeeze out dots, lines or create a pattern. Squeeze the bottle carefully to control the flow.

A smaller squeeze on the bottle will produce a smaller dot. As you press more you will get a larger dot. If you are going for a line, an extended press with the same pressure all the way through will produce a line or circle etc.

Create Dazzling Artwork with Dimensional Craft Paints

Let’s go! Now that you have practiced begin applying the Dot-A-Lot Dimensional Craft Paints to your paper or craft. You may want to keep your hand elevated from the surface so your hand or already applied paint doesn’t get smudged. If needed, allow one section to dry for 24 hours before continuing. Keep dotting until you have finished your pattern or design.

Once your creation has dried (24 hours) you will have a neon bright item or a stunning project with lustrous color. Not only will your object or medium be colorful but it will have a 3D effect as well adding a visual look that not all art possesses.
