instructions

  1. Using a flat brush, base coat the canvas in Calypso Sky. Let dry and apply a second coat if needed.
  2. Turn the mixing bowl upside down onto scrapbook paper and trace the edge with a pencil. Cut out the perfect circle shape using scissors.
  3. Brush a coat of Mod Podge onto the back of the circle and place it gently in the center of the canvas. Smooth the paper down gently with your fingers to remove any air bubbles.
  4. To make the moon, trace the bowl onto a coordinating piece of scrapbook paper. Using a smaller bowl, trace a circle over the same circle but offset it. This will create a crescent moon shape between the two circles. Use scissors to cut out the crescent moon shape.
  5. Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge Satin to the back of the crescent moon and apply it to the canvas over the original paper circle. Use your fingers to smooth out the paper and remove any air bubbles.
  6. Cut out other shapes (like stars) from coordinating papers to compliment the moon and adhere them to the canvas in the same way using Mod Podge Satin.
  7. Using a flat brush, apply Mod Podge Glow to the moon shape. Add Mod Podge Glow to the stars and any other papers you would like to glow in the dark.
  8. Using the end of a paint brush, dip it in Mod Podge glow and make small dots all around the moon to look like distant stars.

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.
