When completed, will my project surface feel tacky in humid weather?
No, once fully cured all Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage Finishes dry to a smooth, non-tacky finish.
What other helpful hints are there when decoupaging fabrics?
When working with dimensional or textured fabrics such as the Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage Lace Trims, it may be helpful to press and hold the lace trim in place a few additional minutes because of the nature of the thicker textiles.
You can also saturate the thicker materials in Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage Finish for a couple of minutes before using. This helps to improve the application of adhesion when working with thicker fabrics.
What types of surface can I apply the Martha Stewart Fabric Cut-Outs to?
The Martha Stewart Fabric Cut-Outs can be used on washable fabrics using the Fabric to Fabric Decoupage Finish or the Oilcloth Decoupage Finish.
They can also be used with wood, tin/metal, paper mache, terra cotta, canvas and glass/ceramic surfaces, using one of the other Martha Stewart Craft Decoupage Finishes.
What is the best way to decoupage fabric cut-outs to my fabric project?
First, prepare your project surface. Then using the Martha Stewart Crafts Soft Bristle Decoupage Brushes, apply one even, smooth coat of Martha Stewart Crafts Fabric to Fabric Decoupage Finish to the area on the selected fabric surface that you would like to decoupage.
For the strongest bond, allow it to dry slightly (about 2-3 minutes) before placing your decoupage fabric cut-out. To place your decoupage fabric cut-outs, apply a smooth, even coat of Martha Stewart Crafts Fabric to Fabric Decoupage Finish to the backside and place onto the pre-decoupaged surface. Use your fingers, a Martha Stewart Craft Squeegee or a Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage Brayer to press fabric onto the surface. Smoothing from the center towards the edge of the fabric to remove air bubbles and excess decoupage finish. Wipe away excess decoupage with a damp paper towel. Once in place and smoothed, allow to dry 2 hours. When completely dry, brush a smooth application of Martha Stewart Crafts Fabric to Fabric Decoupage Finish over the fabric cut-out, making sure to seal the edges of the fabric (extend your decoupage at least ¼-inch past the outline of your fabric cut-out or fabric lace trim to ensure that it is sealed). Allow to dry 2 hours and repeat. If decoupaged item will serve a purpose other than decorative, a third application of Martha Stewart Crafts Fabric to Fabric Decoupage Finish is recommended. To cure, air dry project for 72 hours in a mild dry room. To expedite curing, allow project to dry a minimum of 24 hours, then iron (no steam) using a pressing cloth with a small weave on low-medium setting for 30 seconds in a small circular motion. Do not use a towel as a pressing cloth, as it can leave marks or stick to the decoupaged project. You can also force dry in a dryer on the highest setting for 1 hour. Once cured, fabric project can be hand washed or machine-washed on a gentle cycle using cool water and mild detergent. Do not use fabric softener.
How do I create an oilcloth finish on my project?
If you want to create an oilcloth finish on your project, use the Martha Stewart Crafts Oilcloth Decoupage Finish with your fabric cut-outs.
First, prepare your project surface. Then using the Martha Stewart Crafts Soft Bristle Decoupage Brushes or the Martha Stewart Crafts Squeegee, apply one even, smooth coat of Martha Stewart Crafts Oilcloth Decoupage Finish to the area on the selected fabric surface that you would like to decoupage. For the strongest bond, allow it to dry slightly (about 2-3 minutes) before placing your decoupage fabric cut-out. To place your decoupage fabric cut-outs, apply a smooth, even coat of Martha Stewart Crafts Oilcloth Decoupage Finish to the backside and place onto the pre-decoupaged surface. Use your fingers, a Martha Stewart Craft Squeegee or a Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage Brayer to press fabric onto the surface. Smoothing from the center towards the edge of the fabric to remove air bubbles and excess decoupage finish. Wipe away excess decoupage with a damp paper towel. Once in place and smoothed, allow to dry 2 hours. When completely dry, brush a smooth application of Martha Stewart Crafts Oilcloth Decoupage Finish over the entire project. Allow to dry 2 hours and repeat. If decoupaged item will serve a purpose other than decorative, a third application of Martha Stewart Crafts Oilcloth Decoupage Finish is recommended. To cure, air dry project for 72 hours in a mild dry room. To expedite curing, allow project to dry a minimum of 24 hours, then iron (no steam) using a pressing cloth with a small weave on low-medium setting for 30 seconds in a small circular motion. Do not use a towel as a pressing cloth, as it can leave marks or stick to the decoupaged project.
I washed my fabric project in the washer and when it took it out it looked cloudy, what happened?
When washing your Fabric to Fabric decoupage project in the washer, your decoupage layer will absorb a little water and create a milky look. Your project will be a little tender at this point, so be careful when handling. But do not be alarmed it will fully dry to its original state.
We recommend cleaning an Oilcloth decoupage project by wiping the surface with soft cloth, cool water and mild detergent.
What types of surfaces can the Martha Stewart Crafts ® Decoupage Specialty Trims such as Lace Trims, Embossed Metallic Trims, and Metallic Trims be used on?
The lace trims will work well on most surfaces such as wood, tin/metal, paper mache, terra cotta, canvas, fabric, glass and ceramics. The embossed metallic trims and the metallic trims will also work on these surfaces, but are not machine washable on fabrics.
