    Since we were discussing the Ariel Heroine pin, here’s my collection, lacking the Big Bad Round Pin.

    Michael’s has a 60% off coupon till noon today so I took a ride over and got a new board for $3 something.

    Then went to the Ho and got spray paint and a new, reusable drop cloth. Spent $30. Came home to discover I had bought a duplicate can of paint. Oh well. Will return tonight.

    Sprayed the board. Left it out in the sun.

    Brought it in, applied pins.

    Result:

    Missing Ariel fishy ptd. Want to get the daughters of Triton HM set. After that, we’ll see what’s up. I don’t feel the need to hunt too many old mermaid pins down since they keep coming out with new ones, nor have I really looked to see what’s good in the older ones. Maybe a few Japan pins I’ve seen that are cute.

    It's an alright collection, but you aren't a real Ariel collector until you have the profile. ;P

    Seriously though, I love the Ariel top right! She's so cute! XD

    Oh, what a stunning collection (and total goals for a fellow Ariel collector)! I adore what you’ve done with the board too! :D

    Nope. Not a real Ariel collector at all! Heck I don’t even have the BT!


    Thanks all! The board was easy to paint, though if I do another one I won’t use Kilz primer, I’ll just use rustolium since it’s a little rough. It’s pretty easy to accomplish the fade look and you’ll have paint left over for future projects (that will not take the colors or finishes you have on hand, thus you’ll wind up with about 30 1/2-3/4 full rattle cans).

    The BT is way overrated. There's an LE 100 pin from Japan that came out before it that's the same exact art. I also am not a fan of the composition of it.

    Great collection! And pretty board! I love the colors!

    I hadn’t thought about spray painting the cork. That’s a great idea! I think I may have to create some stencils and spruce up my son’s Star Wars pin boards

    The gradient is a really clever idea! Sometimes I find pins stand out better on different colored backgrounds, but still look best displayed together; this is a really clever way to subtly change the accent color for one board! I mean, we know from WDW that pink is a great accent to green, which is why Walt tinted the concrete, to make everything look more lush and verdant. Nice job! : )

    Ah, I asked you about the colors/background of your Little Mermaid board on a different thread, but I see you've answered it here. It looks so cool!

    Yup. Spray paint. Rustolium painters touch to be specific. I’d tell you the colors right now but it’s too early to venture outside to look in the utility closet! But they were all glossy (which isn’t very glossy on cork) over kilz white spray pint primer. You have to shake the Kilz for everything you’re good for or else it gets gritty, which it did a little on here. But Kilz is good stuff.

    Agreed, Kilz is great. I've never used the spray paint primer, but I've used the regular white primer a LOT in my new house. It's slightly a fixer, and there were a lot of places that needed help... not to mention the previous owners made some very questionable paint color choices inside that are also DARK, and Kilz is the only thing that covers it up with one coat so I can start afresh.
    Thanks for the tips!
