instructions

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 Yellow, Fuschia, Coral and Beige directly onto your canvas. Move and rotate your canvas to create a swirled design. Let dry.

Cactus
1. Pour a thin layer of Coral, Fuschia, and Beige onto a non-stick baking tray. Let dry for 24 hours.
2. Peel the dried “paint skin” from your tray. Cut it down to the size of your cactus’ pot. Apply Mod Podge to your pot and place the “paint skin” onto the cactus. 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.
