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.
How long does it take FolkArt Home Decor Wax to dry?
Allow approximately 24 hours drying time once the wax has been applied to your project. After one day your waxed surface is ready to be buffed.
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.
Will I ever need to reapply FolkArt Home 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 once a year. It is not necessary to reapply wax to decorative or slightly used items.
What is the best application technique to be used when applying FolkArt Home Decor Wax?
Application is simple using a soft bristled brush or a soft, lint-free cloth. The FolkArt Home Decor Wax Brush was specifically designed to be flexible and work wax into the porous, ultra matte paint.
Load the brush with wax, dabbing off any excess. Then apply a thin layer over the project surface in a smooth even application, being careful not to apply too much wax. Allow to dry for approximately 24 hours, then buff to desired sheen using a soft, lint-free cloth. The longer you buff, the higher the sheen.

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.

How many pieces or overlays are packaged with each FolkArt Home Decor Layering Stencil?
Each FolkArt Home Decor Layering Stencil package includes three pieces of possible overlays; a Silhouette, a Pattern, and a Mask stencil.
One, two or all three stencils can be used in many different combinations to create a variety of effects.
