FAQs

How can I use the Mod Podge Decoupage Brushes?
Load the Mod Podge Decoupage Brushes directly from the bottle or a foam plate or bowl. While working in tight surface areas, press the shorter bristles into the creases to both apply Mod Podge, as well as to adhere the paper or fabric being decoupaged.
How do I paint a One Stroke™ heart-shaped leaf?
Load a flat brush with Thicket and Sunflower. Make guidelines in a "v" to help keep the top of your leaf even.
Begin at one guideline with the flat side of the brush. Have the green side of brush to the outside. Touch down with brush.
Push and wiggle the stroke.
Begin turning brush as you get to tip.
Turn and slide as you pull brush up to chisel edge.
Make both sides of the leaf in this same way.
To make a turned edge on the leaf: Begin making a leaf in the same way, as you get to the middle of leaf, pull brush up to chisel.

Can Gallery Glass Window Color be used on outdoor surfaces and displayed outdoors?

No, Gallery Glass Window Color is recommended for indoor use only. It is not formulated for outdoors; high humidity areas (such as bathrooms, storm doors, etc.); automobile glass; or areas exposed to extreme temperatures—i.e., below 45°F (7.2° C) or above 90°F (32.2°C).

Can I burn candles I have decorated with florals, decoupage, etc.?
Decorated candles using Mod Podge ® or Royal Coat ® Decoupage Finish are meant for decorative purposes and not for illumination. Many of the decorations would catch fire and be hazardous if the candle were burned. However, if you are using a wide pillar candle and the decorations do not go to the top of the candle, it can be burned down slightly to create a well, then a votive candle inserted into the well. A new votive candle can be inserted when the old one is finished. Use extreme caution and good judgment when burning candles that have been decorated.
Can I fix a rippled stencil from too much moisture?
You may try adding weight to the dry stencil between uses. Lay a sheet of waxed paper over the stencil then load it up with heavy books, etc.
Can I thin Leather Studio™ paints with water?
Leather Studio paints can be thinned with water, however, too much water will compromise the paint’s adhesion properties.
How are FolkArt® Enamels different from Apple Barrel Gloss?
FolkArt® Enamels are a unique polymer blend that is specially formulated for use on glass and ceramics. They are highly pigmented for excellent opaque coverage
You can achieve a durable, opaque, glossy sheen with one-step – there is no primer or finish needed. The paints can be mixed and blended, making them perfect for the One Stroke method.
When dried and cured, projects painted with FolkArt® Enamels are top-shelf dishwasher safe! When washed correctly, they will not chip, crack, or fade.
How do I paint a One Stroke™ rose?
Double or triple load your brush. Make one shell- shaped petal of the rose at a time. Start with the lighter colors to the outside.
Wiggle and pull the brush as you pivot the brush into a curve. You will have a slightly scalloped outer edge.
End the stroke on the chisel edge to complete the first petal.
Make some guideline dots in a circle to help you determine the positioning of the five outer petals. Overlap each petal onto the previous one.
Paint the five shell-shaped petals to complete the outer skirt of the rose.
Next, paint a rose bud in the center of these outer petals. Make the top part of the bud, overlapping it onto outer petal #1.
Next, paint the bottom stroke of the rose bud.
To begin painting the inner row of petals, touch the brush at the right of the rose bud. Make another shell-shaped petal here.
Can I burn my decoupaged candles?
Candles with decoupaged designs are decorative and should not be burned. Your designs can be destroyed if the candle is burned. In addition, while both Mod Podge and Royal Coat are not flammable, items used with these glues may be.
However, there is a trick if you want to "burn" your decorated candle. Burn the decorated candle until a small well is formed -- a well about the size of a votive candle. Place a small piece of aluminum foil in the bottom of the well. Then place the votive candle in the well and burn it. Replace the votive candle as needed.
Can I create a layered border effect with a painted background by taping off an area?
Yes, simply use stencil or painter’s tape to mask off a border. Load a Fabric Creations™ Sponge Cube with Soft Fabric Ink and pounce the color onto the masked area.
Be sure to allow the painted background area to dry thoroughly before stamping over it with a design.
