The FolkArt Home Decor Layering Mask stencil, when used alone, will create a stenciled background around or outside a design area.

How do I clean FolkArt Home Decor Chalk paint out of my brushes?

How do I create a distressed look using FolkArt Home Decor Chalk paint?
Creating the distressed look is easy and can be achieved using one color application or a multiple color application. Once the top application of paint is dry, simply begin sanding to distress using medium grit sandpaper.
Sanded or distressed areas are usually found on surface edges where it would appear to have been worn with time. After distressing a one color application, the base surface will appear. After distressing a multiple color application, the previously painted color will appear.

How do I use the FolkArt Home Decor Crackle?
The FolkArt Home Decor Crackle is used to create crackled effects with the FolkArt Home Decor Chalk.
Directions: Basecoat surface with FolkArt Home Decor Chalk, allow to dry fully. Apply Crackle Medium evenly over surface using a paint brush, being careful not to over stroke. Allow to thoroughly dry. Apply contrasting top coat of FolkArt Home Decor Chalk in one even coat, being careful not to over stroke. As the topcoat dries, the cracking will occur. It is recommended to test this technique on a small sample surface first. Note topcoat must be applied for cracking to occur. Do not use in humid conditions. Clean up while wet with soap and water. Tips: Thinner applications of topcoat create a fine crackle look. Thicker applications of topcoat create a wider, more weathered crackle look. Over-stroking FolkArt Home Decor Crackle and topcoat may create very fine cracks or no cracks. For indoor use only.
