What is the FolkArt Home Decor Wood Tint Masking?
The FolkArt Home Decor Wood Tint Masking acts as a wood tint resist to create a reverse tinted effect. The masking works on unsealed wood surfaces and works best with the FolkArt Home Decor Wood Tints or similar waterbase stains.
Directions: Apply FolkArt Home Decor Masking through stencil with stencil brush, Spouncer® or roller and allow to dry for 4 hours. The masking should be applied wherever you do not want the wood tint to adhere. Using a soft cloth, apply FolkArt Home Decor Wood Tint over entire project, including masked areas and allow to dry for 4 hours. Using a damp sponge or cloth, gently wipe off Masking and excess Wood Tint, leaving a reverse tinted effect. Clean up while wet with soap and water. For added protection, seal with FolkArt Home Decor Waxes or Varnish. Tips: Apply base wood tint color, once fully dry apply Masking and then second wood tint color to create a layered color effect. For a natural look, apply the masking to raw wood. When wood tint is applied through a stencil, and a stain is applied after, the natural wood will show through the stenciled areas. Does not work with FolkArt Home Decor Chalk. For indoor use only (unless sealed with the FolkArt Home Decor Varnish).
