After using Martha Stewart Crafts ® Fine Crackle Effect, can I apply a color glaze over it?
Yes, we recommend applying a contrasting color glaze to emphasize the cracks. Wait 24 hours before applying. Mix a color glaze by pouring desired amount of Martha Stewart Crafts Tintable Glaze Effect onto a palette. Squeeze a little paint separately onto palette. Using a palette knife, gradually mix paint into the glaze medium until desired color is achieved and fully incorporated.
Are the Adhesive Silkscreens reusable?
Yes, silkscreens are reusable. After each use, silkscreens should be washed and dried immediately to prevent clogging. Silkscreens can be washed with warm water immediately or can be gently scrubbed with soap and water.
Keep a bowl of water nearby when you are using your silkscreens. It saves you time and fewer trips to the sink if you can quickly dunk your silkscreens in the water for a soak while you continue to work. This will prevent you from ruining your silkscreens if you forget to wash them immediately, and your paint dries in open areas of the screen. Never let your paint dry in the screen in the effort to apply more than one coat of paint. This will result in ruining your silkscreen and the paint will peel along with your silkscreen when you remove it from your surface.

Over time and after many uses, the adhesive on the back of the silkscreen will become less tacky, however, the silkscreen is still usable. Lightly blow-drying or warming your silkscreens in your hand can aid in reinvigorating their adhesive qualities. If the silkscreen no longer sticks, it is still reusable and can be adhered with a low tack tape.
