instructions

  1. In separate cups, mix your Folkart Acrylic Paint with your Folkart Pouring Medium. The ratio should be 2:1 paint to medium.
  2. Stick pushpins on all four corners of the back of your wood round. This will keep the round elevated during the pouring process.
  3. Cover one half of your round in stencil tape. Make sure the tape is flush to the surface of the round to prevent bleeding.
  4. Over your non-stick baking tray, pour your paint and pouring medium mixtures onto the uncovered part of your wood round. Gently tilt and swirl the wood round over the tray until you reach your desired marbled design. Be careful not to get too much paint onto the covered side.
  5. Place your marbled wood round onto some newspaper or poster board. 
  6. Now tilt and swirl the paint in your baking tray until you get a nice marbled pattern.
  7. While the paint is still wet, carefully remove the tape from your wood round. You don’t want any paint to end up on the raw wood side of the round. If paint does get onto the other side of your round, gently sand the paint off with some fine grit sandpaper once the round is dry. Once the round is dry, remove the pushpins. 
  8. Allow the paint in your non-stick pan to dry completely. This should take about 24 hours depending on how thick the layer of paint is.
  9. Once the paint in your pan is dry, gently remove the “paint skin” from the pan.
  10. Either print a picture and trace or draw two of your favorite fall leaves on a piece of paper. Cut out the leaf shapes.
  11. Place your leaf shape cut outs on your paint skin. Use a pencil to trace the shapes on your paint skin. Cut out the two leaf shapes from your paint skin.
  12. Place your leaf paint skins on your vases like a cling. Make sure to remove the skins from the vases before washing. Re-apply the skins back to the vases after washing.
