dohvinci fun

Recently I was invited to The Paint Bar on Newbury Street in Boston, along with several other Boston area bloggers, to check out Hasbro’s new art experience: DohVinci.

Dohvinci Paint Bar Event

But what is DohVinci you ask? DohVinci, an entirely new art experience from the makers of Play-Doh, just launched and is an enjoyable and unique creative experience for kids and adults of all ages! Since the design compound sticks to other surfaces such as wood, glass, duct tape, and paper – the creative possibilities are endless!

We were given the chance to decorate some household items with DohVinci (chalkboards, picture frames and jewelry boxes).  

Dohvinci supplies

Each of us were given a whole bunch of DohVinci colors to design with, a styler (applicator gun) and some shaped tips (hearts, flowers, butterflies, etc) to work with. The DohVinci cartridges fit easily into the styler and what I loved was that since it takes many hours for the DohVinci to harden, mistakes can be easily and immediately wiped away.

I decided to go with the jewelry box & here I am hard at work and with the finished product:

Dohvinci Decorating

In case you’re wondering, it takes about 24 hours for the compound to dry completely.

All the bloggers at the event had so much fun creating things with the DohVinci.  Here I am with a couple of lovely fellow bloggers (Nicole of Good Golly Miss Blondie and Katrina from East Coast Mama) and our creations.

Oh, and here’s a little fun fact for you.  Did you know that today is National Play-Doh Day. Consider yourself informed.

  27. This looks like it would be perfect for my oldest daughter. She really does like PlayDoh, but thinks it’s too “young” for her. DohVinci though, isn’t.

  28. I don’t know whether to be excited or afraid. I like the idea but then the memories of trying to get dried play dough out of my carpet come back to haunt me.
