instructions

  1. Surface Prep: For leather surfaces – gently wipe with alcohol to clean and remove debris. Let dry
  2. before painting. For vinyl – wash gently with soap and water, rinse well and let dry. For canvas – wash and dry according to care tag instructions before painting.
  3. Remove laces and tape off any areas of the project surface you do not want to paint with masking tape including the inside of the shoe and the sole.
  4. Using the project photo as inspiration, sketch out your design using a pencil directly onto the shoe.
  5. Fill in your design with the colors listed or the colors of your choice. Allow to dry and add a second
  6. coat.
  7. Blend your colors where they meet using your favorite ombre technique. This may take many
  8. coats and a good amount of fussing. Stick with it!
  9. Brush on small amounts of white in the yellow areas to create the “hottest” spots.
  10. Using black, outline your flames to create a crisp edge.
  11. Allow 24 hours to dry, and 30 days to fully cure.
  12. Optional: For best results, seal with Kicks Studio Matte or High Gloss Finish.
  13. Allow 24 hours to dry, and 30 days to fully cure. Allow the paint to fully cure before cleaning.

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.
Yes, simply use stencil or painter’s tape to mask off a border. Load a Fabric Creations™ Sponge Cube with Soft Fabric Ink and pounce the color onto the masked area.
Be sure to allow the painted background area to dry thoroughly before stamping over it with a design.
Separate the strands of floss
Take one strand and double it (most cross stitches require 2 strands, while back stitches require just one.)
Thread the looped end of the strand through the eye of the needle
Pull the loop to the bottom
NEVER make knots in your floss, so as to ensure a smooth finished back.
