I don’t know what this stuff would be called, so I have no idea what to even search for. I am hoping someone will recognize what I am describing and give me the official name.
When I was a kid, I had a craft/art project that was similar to a paint-by-number set, except it used some sort of powdered material (I am guessing a fine felt-like material, but I have no idea).
The picture was on a piece of sticky cardboard that had paper on top of it, and it was pressed by a sharp stencil that cut the different shapes on the picture. When you wanted to use a color, you peeled back the sections of paper that had that number on it, and you exposed a sticky section underneath that you could sprinkle the colored felt-dust onto.
Once the first color was down, you moved onto the second color and removed those sections of paper, exposed the sticky part of the cardboard, and repeated the process. Lather, rinse and repeat until your picture was complete. The entire piece of cardboard was coated with the sticky surface… And when you were finished, there were no exposed sticky sections.
I know this description stinks, but it’s the best I can do.
Anyone know what I am thinking of, and is there a name for this?
