instructions

1. Paint the inside of your wood panel with Vintage Tea Rose and let dry. Use your Mod Podge Matte to adhere your printed photo to the inside center of the wood panel. Cut out big flowers from your floral scrapbook paper. Decoupage them around your printed photo. Let the Mod Podge dry. Seal your entire wood panel with Mod Podge Matte. Let dry.

2. Brush on a layer of Mod Podge Crackle Medium onto your sealed wood panel. Be careful not to overwork/over brush the medium. Let it dry and watch your panel start to crack.

3. Mix a 1:3 ratio of FolkArt Coffee Bean and water in a cup. Once your crackle project is completely cracked and dried, brush your “stain” over the cracks.

4. Tape off your wood tray. Paint one half of the tray with Wicker White and let dry. Adhere a decorative napkin to the White area of your tray with Mod Podge Matte. Once dry, apply a sealing coat of Mod Podge Matte onto the napkin side of the tray. Once dried and sealed, brush on a layer of Mod Podge Crackle Medium to your tray.

5. Cut a piece of scrapbook paper the size of your ceramic house. Decoupage your paper onto the house. Once dry, seal with Mod Podge Matte. When the sealing layer is dry, brush on a layer of Mod Podge Crackle Medium.

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.
