Advantages: Easy to do for most age ranges, can be picked up & put down, fun, cheap.
I love to try my hand at crafty things, however, I am not usually very good so I am forever trying new things that I can do that look quite easy. That was my reason for purchasing this scraperfoil kit for £1.49 from my local Hobbycraft store. I figured that if I was not very good that it would not be much money wasted and at least it will have given me some entertainment for a little while too.
This is quite a simple little kit but then the price is fabulous so I have no complaints there. You get the picture that you are going to scrape as well as a foil scraper. The instructions are on the back of the packet and are easy enough to follow for me. It is easy enough to see on the actual picture itself where to use the scraper and this makes the whole process incredibly simple really.
I really enjoyed using this scraper kit and found that the lines were incredibly simple to follow. I do not have the most steady hand but I rarely missed a line much at all and the overall look was not ruined by the few lines that were not exactly dead lined up. I found it best to spend a few minutes working on this and then come back to this later so that I didn't get too frustrated with some of the smaller more repetitive lines.
There is no preparation time in using this kit, other than removing it from the packaging, and one of these lasted me around 1 1/2 - 2 hours with doing a little bit here and there. I found it was simple enough to use my handheld hoover on my desk after doing this to remove all the scrapings, which were similar to those from a scratch card, and besides putting the scraper somewhere there was no other clean up involved.
Overall I thoroughly enjoyed this kit. The picture that I made, of a dolphin, looked almost as good as the picture on the box and I was able to send this to my niece for her bedroom as she absolutely loves dolphins. This was cheap and gave me a few hours entertainment. I would definitely try another one of these in the future, perhaps a larger one, but I do find myself wondering where I would put these after they are done as while they are fun to do they do not look like an amazing piece of art like other items that can be created at home.
Summary: A fantastic crafty afternoon for just £1.50!
