On what types of surfaces can Martha Stewart Marbling Medium be used?

Many porous and non-porous surfaces can be decorated with Martha Stewart Marbling Medium such as wood, papier mache, paper (for notecards or watercolor art), canvas, cork, metal and ceramic. However, on sealed surfaces such as ceramics, Martha Stewart Marbling Medium should be used for decorative purposes only. When applying marbled effects on fabrics, items should be used for decorative purposes only as well because the paint and Marbling Medium mixture will dry to a non-flexible film. Also note that surfaces to be decorated can be flat or dimensional.

How should I clean my FolkArt Home Decor Layering Stencils after using them?
After each use, it is best to immediately clean each paint-filled stencil. When working with waterbase paints, wash each stencil with mild soap and water.
For stubborn dried paint areas, try using a little rubbing alcohol to remove the paint buildup.
Should I allow each stenciled layer to dry before adding the next FolkArt Home Decor Layering Stencil?
Yes, when creating with FolkArt Home Decor Layering Stencils, it is best to allow each stenciled layer to completely dry prior to adding another stenciled layer.
Not only will the paint colors stay clean, it will also prevent the back of the stencils from getting wet and possibly smudging the first layer of paint.
I am not an artist, do I need to know how to blend colors or mix colors to complete a Paint by Number?
Absolutely not! Plaid’s Paint by Number artwork is designed so that every color or every value of color is provided for you. No blending or mixing of colors is required.
As an example when painting a sky, light to dark values of blue will be provided based on the artwork.
How long does Martha Stewart Crafts Vintage Decor paint take to dry?
On most surfaces, Martha Stewart Crafts Vintage Decor paint dries to the touch very quickly. However, we recommend 2 hours of dry time in between coats.
Note: a hair dryer may be used to speed up drying time. The paint fully cures in 24 hours. The wax fully cures in 7 days.
Will I ever need to reapply Martha Stewart Crafts Vintage Decor Wax?
On well-used furniture items such as chairs, tables, or dressers, etc., it is a good idea to reapply the finish with a fresh coat of Clear Wax every 6 to 12 months, or as needed. It is not necessary to reapply wax to decorative items.
How should I clean my brush after applying Martha Stewart Crafts Vintage Decor Wax?
Clean up is easy with soap and warm water. Work the brush bristles into soap lather then rinse well.
