Instructions

  1. Box Bottom - Pour a small amount of Hot Pink into a foam bowl then load the FolkArt Ultra Dye Brush with the Hot Pink dye.
  2. Apply the dye to the unfinished surface of the box bottom. Allow to dye to soak into the surface, then wipe with a soft paper towel to remove excess dye, if desired. Allow to dry.
  3. Box Lid – Pour small amounts of Pucker Up, Lady Marmalade, Hot Pink, Turquoise and Purple Rain into foam bowls.
  4. Brush Pucker Up onto the box lid at the medallion flower center using a round brush.
  5. Next add Lady Marmalade in a circle around Pucker Up, allowing the two colors to touch, slightly blending. Continue with a circle of Hot Pink, blending the dyes.
  6. To complete the medallion flower, add Purple Rain touching the Hot Pink working towards the edge of the flower petals.
  7. Paint Turquoise onto the rest of the box lid including the sides, however, do not blend into the Purple Rain. Allow to dry.
  8. To seal and protect, apply a coat of FolkArt Ultra Dye Satin Varnish to the entire table top. Allow to dry and completely cure before using.

TIPS

  • To create a solid line of color without multiple dyes blending, create a masking line using stencil tape.  Also try allowing each color to thoroughly dry before applying the next.
  • When working with multiple colors, it is best to lightly spray clear acrylic sealer prior to brushing-on the FolkArt Ultra Dye Satin Varnish. This will set the colors prohibiting them from bleeding while wet with varnish.
