Painted Jigsaw Project

Here is a fantastic way to reuse an old Early Learning jigsaw and turn it into a fun craft project for your kids.

Start with a plain jigsaw that has run its course.

Apply a base coat of white to cover the image before applying the new colour for your personalised jigsaw.
Most of these jigsaws are made on cheap cardboard so keep your paint brush as dry as possible when painting. Don't have too much water in the brush as this will cause the cardboard to warp.

Once the paint is dry, take the puzzle apart to check that none of it has stuck together. Try and remember where each part goes when taking it apart as you now just have one solid colour jigsaw.

Decide what you are going to draw on the jigsaw and use a permanent black marker to apply it.

You can then start colouring in and painting your design any way you like.

Once you've completed your jigsaw, you need to seal it.
You can pick up a jar of Mod Podge in most craft shops or you can use a Gel Matt Medium found in most art supply stores.

And there you have it. A one of a kind kids puzzle.

And the great thing about this jigsaw is that when you get bored of that image you can just start the process all over again and create a new one.

I was infected with HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS in 2011, i went to many hospitals for cure but there was no solution, so I was thinking how can I get a solution out so that my body can be okay. One day I was in the river side thinking where I can go to get solution. so a lady walked to me telling me why am I so sad and i open up all to her telling her my problem, she told me that she can help me out, she introduce me to a doctor who uses herbal medication to cure HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS and gave me his email, so i mail him. He told me all the things I need to do and also give me instructions to take, which I followed properly.
