  1. Paint the exterior of the house with Cinnamon paint.  Use two coats with 1 hour dry time in between.
  2. Apply the Collage Clay just as you would icing.  Apply Collage Clay to the house using a variety of decorating tips.  Sprinkle white ultra fine glitter over the Collage Clay.  Embed the candies into the Collage Clay by gently pressing the items into the Clay.  Allow to dry for 48 hours.
  3. Star Tip: This tip makes little stars and is great for covering a large surface. 
  4. Round Tip: This tip is great for details and edging around the doors and windows.
  5. Wave Tip: This tip is great for making wide stripes and for roofing.

TIP: Tint your Collage Clay by mixing FolkArt Acrylic Paint with the Collage Clay. Add more paint for a deeper color and less for a pastel color.
