Success= Motivation + Right Tools
Updated: Feb 28
Today we are coming to you with a list. “The It List” for the WC Shop!
This list includes the tools most utilized in our workshop.
We will come back to this post and add more as we can.
When adding permanent pieces to signs.
* The most prized tool in the shop is our Ryobi P320 Airstrike 18 Volt One+ Lithium Ion Cordless Brad Nailer!! This thing is AMAZING! You can find it Here on Amazon. This tool was a GAME Changer for us! No more hauling air compressors to parties!! YAY!
〰️FYI We use 1/4‘ plywood for all of our designs〰️
*We use GREX P6/10L 23 Gauge 3/8-Inch Length Headless Pins. You can find them here on Amazon as well.
*Another option we have had luck with is this Stick Fast Instant Adhesive - It is FAST Y'all. Don't stick your fingers together. For real. You can find it on.. you guessed it.. Amazon as well right here.
When adding interchangeable pieces to signs.
-We do have a few customers who use magnets and say they love them!
Bows - Ribbon - Rope - Paint Brushes -
* We order the bulk of our crafting ribbon, rope, and supplies for finished signs and parties from Craft Outlet online.
* If you’ve ever joined us for one of our live video tutorials you’ve probably noticed that we paint with cosmetic wedges A lot! These little sponges are gems for painting words, interchangeable pieces, and dimensional add-ons. You can purchase them here on Amazon or at any local dollar store!
Just remember a little goes a long way! 😉
Paint - Stain
We use a variety of paints, stains, and finishes we love to try new brands and varieties to create different looks! We do use Apple Barrel paints a lot and our Favorite glaze is Rustoleum decorative glaze in Java Brown ❤️ Both of these can purchased at your local Walmart or similar store.
That's all for now. Until next time friends!
