Other Supplies

Raw wood ampersand, Waxed paper, Tin cans or disposable cups, Paper towels, Rubbing alcohol, Fine grit sandpaper

Instructions

Optional: Basecoat the ampersand with Wicker White. Allow to dry and sand any rough spots using fine grit sandpaper until smooth. Basecoating raw wood with acrylic paint helps the FolkArt Pouring Paint swirl more easily. 

  1. Protect the work surface by placing a sheet of waxed paper over it.
  2. Using the Direct Pour Technique and while working with one color at a time, begin squeezing a small amount of paint onto the wood ampersand. Immediately repeat squeezing the second color onto the letter.
  3. Lift the wood surface, then tilt it in various directions, allowing the paint to swirl to desired patterns. Be sure to allow the excess to flow off the edges covering the sides of the letter.
  4. Once happy with the marbled effect created, set the ampersand horizontally level on risers such as small disposable cups so that the paint can dry without making direct contact with the protected work surface.
  5. FolkArt Pouring paint will dry within 24 hours and will be cured within 48 hours.
  6. Once cured, spray the painted surface with FolkArt Clear Acrylic Sealer.
