-Star Shaped Jewelry Tray
-Painter’s Tape
-Blow Dryer
-Disposable Glove
-Plastic/Paper Cup
-Disposable Tray to catch run-off paint


12”x12” Stretched Canvas
1. Place a thumbtack on the back of all four corners of your canvas to keep the canvas elevated off of your work surface. This will allow air to get to the back of your canvas, so it dries easily.
2. Pour White, Pink, Purple, and Black directly onto your canvas. Move and rotate your canvas to create a swirled design. Let dry.
8”10” Stretched Canvas
1. Pour your Black paint onto the canvas so that it covers your entire canvas.
2. While wet, pour a line of Purple and Pink down the center of your canvas. Use your blow-dryer to manipulate the two colors to create a cosmic galaxy pattern.
3. Pour some White paint into a cup. While your hand is gloved, dip the tips of your fingers into the paint, then splatter it onto your canvas to create a starry, speckled effect.
Jewelry Tray
1. Tape off one half of your tray with painter’s tape. Pour White, Pink, and Purple onto the un-taped half of your tray. Tilt and rotate your tray to swirl the paint. Remove the tape while wet and let dry.

Thinning Apple Barrel Pouring Medium is not necessary, as it is manufactured to the perfect consistency to create a variety of marbled effects using either the Direct Pour Method, the Dirty Pour Method, or the Flip Cup Method.
No, shaking Apple Barrel Marbling Medium may only introduce air bubbles into the product.  It is best not to shake before using.
No, Apple Barrel Pouring Medium should be used on indoor surfaces only, as it is not designed to be permanent outdoor without an outdoor sealer or varnish applied.  When decorating an outdoor surface with Apple Barrel Pouring Medium mixed with Apple Barrel acrylic paints, the completed project should be varnished with an outdoor varnish such as Apple Barrel Outdoor Sealers available in Matte, Satin or Gloss finishes.
