instructions

Leather Tag:

  1. Secure your leather tag onto your flat surface. You can use some double sided tape to tape the bottom side of your tag down to your surface.
  2. If you have any words on your image, make sure to reverse the image. You can do this on an editing software or ask your local print shop to reverse the image for you.
  3. Lay your image face side down onto your leather tag. You can tape the top of your image onto your surface to secure it in place.
  4. Turn your Photo Transfer Tool onto its highest setting and wait for it to heat up. Be careful when you are using your hot tool- you can secure your tool to your table by using a clamp to attach the cord to your table.
  5. Move your tool all over your tag. Keep the tool moving to avoid burning your paper or leather. If you feel your tool is too hot, you can offload some of the heat by moving your tool all over a scrap piece of wood.
  6. Continue to run your tool all over your tag until your image is transferred onto the surface.


Black Flask:
  1. Clean your flask with rubbing alcohol or dish soap and water.
  2. Cut out your desired letter from your stencil pack and place it onto your flask. Make sure the stencil is flush to the surface of the flask.
  3. Apply your Gold Stencil Paste to your letter stencil. Remove the stencil while the paste is still wet to avoid pulling up the paste.


Shibori Dress Socks:
  1. Fold your socks in an accordion style long ways. Secure rubber bands about 1.5 in. apart down your folded socks.
  2. Mix a 1:3 ratio of your FolkArt Multi-Surface paint and water in a cup. Stir until well combined. Gently pour your paint mixture onto the spaces between your rubber bands. Make sure to leave white space where your rubber bands are.
  3. Flip your socks and pour the mixture on the other side. Let the socks dry.
  4. Cut your rubber bands off with scissors and unfold your shibori socks.

Decorated candles using Mod Podge ® or Royal Coat ® Decoupage Finish are meant for decorative purposes and not for illumination. Many of the decorations would catch fire and be hazardous if the candle were burned. However, if you are using a wide pillar candle and the decorations do not go to the top of the candle, it can be burned down slightly to create a well, then a votive candle inserted into the well. A new votive candle can be inserted when the old one is finished. Use extreme caution and good judgment when burning candles that have been decorated.
First check to see if the napkin is 2 ply. If so, separate and lay aside. Brush Mod Podge directly on the your surface. Carefully place the printed napkin on the surface and lightly blot down with a dampened sponge. Start blotting in the center and work to the edge. Once it is in place, let dry. After about 30 minutes lightly apply a top coat of Mod Podge.
  1. Apply a coat of Mod Podge® to the inside of the form and allow to dry slightly. Place the Napkin design where desired and gently rub it flat with your thumb.
  2. Cover the image with a second very thin coat of Mod Podge®, beginning in the center and brushing out. Allow to dry thoroughly.
  3. Add special sponging or spouncing effects, as desired, around the design and let dry.
  4. Paint the whole inside with a light color of FolkArt® Acrylic Colors. If you want to use a darker color inside, first paint around the Napkin design with a light color, let dry and then add the darker color.
