Adhesive Vinyl Sheets by Angel Crafts Review

I found a new art medium I love. It's 6x12 Adhesive Vinyl Sheets made by Angel Crafts.

I've been wanting to try vinyl sheets, but never really knew where to get them. I love this set because of the color variety. They send 35 sheets in a pack + 5 free sheets.

35 Gloss Colors Consist of (I'm grouping them in like colors): 
  • Whites: Gloss White, Matte White
  • Blacks: Matte Black, Gloss Black, Flat Black
  • Grey and Silver: Silver, Medium Grey
  • Brown, Gold and Beige: Brown, Gold, Beige
  • Reds: Tomato Red, Wild Cardinal Red, Poppy Red
  • Yellows and Oranges: Sunbeam Yellow, Sunflower, Matte Yellow, Tangerine
  • Greens: Kelly Green, Forest Green, Dark Green, Lime Green
  • Blues: Blue, Plum, Azure Blue, Teal, Olympic Blue, Sapphire Blue, Peacock
  • Reds and Pinks: Red, Burgundy, Magenta, Fiesta Pink
  • Purples: Violet, Royal Purple, Lavender 
Yellow to Red Orange

Pink to Red to Dark Red

Light Green to Dark Green

Light Blue to Dark Blue

Light Purple to Blue Purple

The Neutrals

I debated what to do with the vinyl. I thought about making a stencil for a trunk I have. The motivation just wasn't there for that project right now. I've been in more of a painting mood lately. 

I decided to make a sea turtle with a sandcastle coming out of it's shell. I'm not 100% sure I'm done just yet. I think I may want to add baby turtles in the background. Any dark spots you see on the turtle is cut out vinyl. It stuck well. I was able to do slight paint washes over the spots, which I happened to love.


I also used: 
  • Paper punches, which may in the future be vinyl punches for me
  • Tooth Picks cut down
  • Rubber Spanish moss
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Matte Medium
  • Pumice Medium
  • Sand 
  • Black Sharpie
I am so happy with how the vinyl on the turtle just pops! It was so easy to cut. I used a small sewing scissors to cut it. I loved how it stuck it's self to the surface. I'm so used to putting a clear paint medium down to hold stuff down. I didn't have to do that. It saved time because I didn't have to wait for anything to dry.

It's $16.95 for the set of 40 vinyl sheets. I love all the colors they sent. You can use this for other things like Home Decor, Signs, Letters, Banners, Striping, Decals, Window Graphics, Tiles, and so much more! 

What would you use this vinyl for? Any ideas?

That's such a cute picture! You did great working with the vinyl on it! I usually use my vinyl in my Silhouette Cameo to make personalized stencils and such.
