FAQs

How do I read my Color & Symbol Guide for my Bucilla project?
The 1st column is for the type of stitch. The 2nd column is the symbol for the individual colors. The 3rd column is the number of strands to be used in stitching the design. The 4th column is the color name. (Please be advised that the color name is specific to your kit. You may use the same color in another kit and it will be named something different.) The 5th column shows the Bucilla Floss Color Number. The 6th column shows the number of yards your kit should contain of each color. (Please be advised that your kit may be sent 2-yard strands of floss. So if your kit calls for 4 yards of a certain color, you may have 2 long strings that equal that 4 yards.) The 7th column shows the color name in French and Spanish for our International Consumers.
How do I use the Waverly Inspirations White Wax?
For best results, it is recommended to first apply Waverly Inspirations Clear Wax, let dry and buff. The Clear Wax on the project surface makes it easier to move the White Wax around and achieve your desired finish. Then apply Waverly Inspirations White Wax on top of the Clear Wax layer. While the White Wax is still wet, quickly wipe excess wax off of surface, leaving the white color in the surface recesses.
Wait 24 hours and buff project to desired sheen. Keep waxed surfaces free of moisture and heavy use for 7 days. For additional protection on heavily used surfaces, apply Clear Wax every 6 to 12 months, or as needed. Clean up while wet with soap and water. The Antiquing Wax can be applied the same way as the White Wax, leaving dark brown color in the recessed areas. For indoor use only.
How do you paint a One Stroke™ tulip?
Load flat brush with Berry Wine and Sunflower or Wicker White. Touch brush to surface to begin the center back petal.
Wiggle and push brush up side of petal. Pull brush up to chisel edge at tip. When you reach tip, do not lift brush.
Pull brush back down other side of petal as you wiggle and push.
Make a side petal using the same technique as the center petal, however, just make one side.
For the inside edge of the side petal, make an "S" stroke.
How should I prepare my project surface before painting with Leather Studio™ paints?
All surfaces, new or used should be thoroughly cleaned with soap and water. No need to totally immerse your vinyl or leather surface, simply moisten a cloth with warm water and mild soap; wipe over surface to clean removing all impurities. Allow to dry.
The FolkArt Home Decor Chalk Paint Brush and Wax Brush seem too large for my small project. Is there another option?
Yes! The FolkArt Home Decor Paint & Wax Brush Set is ideal for smaller projects and for getting into small, detailed areas.
The Small Chalk Brush can be used in the same way as the Large Chalk Brush. The Small Wax Brush can be used in the same way as the Large Wax Brush. The Small Wax Brush can also be used as a stencil brush with the FolkArt Home Decor Chalk and FolkArt Home Decor Stencils.
How can I achieve a high shine finish on my decoupage project?
If you would like to achieve a high shine finish, complete your decoupage project in the traditional way, applying two top coats of decoupage finish to the completed design. Wait one week for the finish to cure, then spray the project with Mod Podge Acrylic Spray Gloss Sealer.
How do I remove the cutouts from my paper stencils?

How do you paint a One Stroke™ wildflower?
Paint in stem first. For flower, load brush with Night Sky and Wicker White. Touch chisel edge to surface, slightly above stem.
Lean brush towards you, pull and lift. Lead with the white edge.

How long does Waverly Inspirations Chalk take to dry?

How should I store my needlework?
It is best to wrap them in white tissue paper, place them in a box, and store them in a dry place. Do not store them in plastic.
