How do I use the FolkArt Home Decor Varnish?
The FolkArt Home Decor Varnish is perfect to seal and protect outdoor and heavily used surfaces like table tops. This waterbase, non-toxic varnish has an ultra-matte finish that can also be used on raw wood. For indoor and outdoor use.
Directions: Mix well by rolling bottle on table top. Do not shake! Using a soft bristle brush, apply to dry, clean surface. Allow varnish to dry to the touch between coats, approximately 15 minutes. Clean up while wet with soap and water. Tips: For heavily used items apply 2-3 coats, allowing dry time between coats. When applying FolkArt Home Decor Varnish, hold brush at a 30 degree angle to project surface so varnish flows evenly from brush.
How do I use the FolkArt Home Decor White Wax?
For easiest application of FolkArt Home Décor White Wax, it is recommended to first apply FolkArt Home Decor Clear Wax, let dry and buff. Having the layer of Clear Wax on the project surface between the painted finish and the White Wax will allow you more flexibility of moving the White Wax around.
Then apply FolkArt Home Decor White Wax on top of the Clear Wax layer. While White Wax is still wet, quickly wipe excess wax off of surface, leaving a lighter color in intricate details, corners, and worn areas. Let dry overnight, then buff to desired sheen with a clean cloth. Keep waxed surfaces free of moisture and heavy use for 7 days. Clean up while wet with soap and water. For indoor use only.
How can I use FolkArt Home Decor Layering Stencils?
When combining any or all of these layering stencils, a variety of effects can be achieved! Try stenciling the Silhouette design a color different than the project’s basecoat color. When dry, layer the detailed Pattern stencil using a third complementary color.

The FolkArt Home Decor Layering Silhouette stencil, when used alone, will create a basic stenciled shape or opaque outline of a shape design.

The FolkArt Home Decor Layering Pattern stencil, when used alone, will create a detailed stenciled pattern design.

The FolkArt Home Decor Layering Mask stencil, when used alone, will create a stenciled background around or outside a design area.

What should I use to buff the FolkArt Home Decor wax?
When buffing, it is best to use a soft, lint-free cloth.
Fold the cloth into a small section which can be easily held in one hand. If working on a large piece of furniture, you will need to open the buffing cloth and refold it to a clean spot several times.
On what types of surfaces can Martha Stewart Home Decor Paint be used?

Many porous surfaces can be decorated with Martha Stewart Home Decor Paint such as wood, concrete, terra cotta, stone, fabric and canvas. However, on sealed surfaces such as glassware, ceramics and rigid plastic (not for use on flexible plastic, such as food storage containers), the paints should be used as decorative surfaces only. Also, fabric items should be used for decorative purposes only as the paints will not be permanent on fabric.

How shall I clean my brush after applying FolkArt Home Decor Wax?
Clean up is easy with soap and warm water. Work the brush bristles into soap lather then rinse well.
Is a project created using Martha Stewart Home Decor Paint dishwasher-safe?

No, projects painted on tiles, vases and other glass or ceramic vessels using Martha Stewart Home Decor Paints are not dishwasher-safe, nor should they be immersed in water. These surfaces should be used for decorative purposes only.

Is it difficult to achieve the distressed look?
FolkArt Home Decor Chalk sands easily without “gumming up” the sandpaper. When sanding, you will notice a fine powder which is easily brushed or wiped away.
When satisfied with the distressed look, wipe project surface with a damp paper towel or tack cloth to remove excess sanding dust.
