FAQs

How shall I clean my cured Leather Studio™ paint projects?
Completed and cured Leather Studio projects can be washed lightly wiping over the painted surface with a moistened cloth using mild soap and water.
How can I create a lighter shade of Gallery Glass® Window Color™?
To lighten a color, mix with Crystal Clear or Snow White.
How can I get rid of the paint build up on a paper stencil that has been used many times?
Paper stencils are not intended for life-long uses. If your stencil is well used and paint has built up over the design with use, you might be ready for a new paper stencil or you may try this tip: gently sand the dried paint build up with a very fine grit sandpaper.
How do I clean Waverly Inspirations Chalk and Wax out of my brushes?
Waverly Inspirations Chalk and Wax should be cleaned from your tools using mild soap and warm water immediately after each use.
Work soap into brush bristles to create a lather and rinse well.
How do I determine how many strands of each color I will need for each stitch in my Bucilla needlecraft project?
Refer to the color symbol guide in the instructions. Look in the third column (the column with the hands separating the floss). The number in that column tells you how many strands you’ll need for each color in each stitch.
How do you paint a One Stroke™ daisy?
Load the flat brush with School Bus Yellow OR School Bus Yellow and Wicker White. Touch chisel edge of brush to surface and lean.
Pull brush towards you. Push slightly to widen stroke. End up on chisel and lift.
Make these teardrop strokes in a circle to create the daisy. Make strokes at various angles.
Use the brush handle to dot a center in daisy.
How should I apply Leather Studio™ paint to my project surface?
Squeeze a small amount of Leather Studio™ paint onto a foam plate or disposable palette. Using a soft bristled paintbrush or foam brush, apply paint using long, smooth strokes applied in the same direction; starting along the edges. Work quickly and do not try to get perfect coverage with the first coat.
Overworking the strokes as the paint is drying will cause the strokes to drag pulling color off of the surface. Let paint dry for at least one hour or until it feels dry to the touch before applying additional coat(s).
How should I care for my paint brushes to make them last longer and ensure better performance?
Proper cleaning and care makes brushes last longer and perform better. Wood and paper are hardest on brushes and will tend to make your brushes wear faster.
  1. Thoroughly rinse the brush with water, using the grid at the bottom on the Brush Basin®.
  2. Squeeze Brush Plus® brush cleaner or FolkArt® Brush Cleaner & Conditioner into the bristles and work it in with your fingers all the way to the ferrule. Rinse with water. Repeat if needed.
  3. After you have cleaned your brushes, use Brush Plus or FolkArt® Brush Cleaner & Conditioner to resize them. Work it in back and forth to get enough cleaner into the bristles to reshape them.
  4. Pull the bristles between your fingers to re-shape a chisel. With a flat brush you may need to do this a couple of times for the medium to start to set up.
  5. Make sure that your bristles are not touching a surface when drying.
  6. Store brushes with bristles upright in a cup or brush caddy.
Here are some other tips for making your brushes last longer.
  • Don't allow paint to dry in your brush.
  • As you paint, occasionally rinse the bristles with water.
  • Store brushes in the Brush Basin® or in a container that allows brushes to retain their form and be separated from each other.
Do I need to seal my ink-jet printouts before applying Mod Podge?
Yes, you will need to seal your ink-jet print with a matte acrylic sealer such as Mod Podge Acrylic Sealer, before using Mod Podge. Spray a very light coat, let dry and spray again.
How can I get a frosted appearance with Gallery Glass®?
For a smooth frosted look, dab Clear Frost paint on the surface with a bristle brush, covering the section with a thin coat. Brush the paint up into the leading to seal it in place. The frosted look will appear as the paint dries.
