Instructions

Surface Preparation 

  1. Using the large flat brush, apply a smooth, even coat of All-Purpose Sealer to all wood pieces.
  2. Allow the sealer to dry, and then sand with fine grit sandpaper.

Painting 

  1. Basecoat all wood letters Tiger Eye using a medium flat brush. Basecoat the base of the package wood cutout Tiger Eye.
    1. NOTE: do not paint the bow on the gift package.
  2. Using painter’s tape, tape straight lines approximately ¼” wide on each wood letter. Refer to the photo for stripe placement.
  3. Pick up a small amount of Mod Podge Collage Clay on the back of the bent blade palette knife; and apply to each taped off line, just like buttering a piece of toast or icing a cake. Remove the tape while the Collage Clay is still wet.
  4. On the wood cutout gift package, hold the snowflake stencil in place and ice the Mod Podge Collage Clay covering the entire package shape; carefully remove stencil.
  5. Allow all of the Mod Podge Collage Clay to dry for several hours.
  6. Next paint all the dried Mod Podge Collage Clay areas (stipes and snowflakes) White.
    1. NOTE: You may find it easier to position the stencil back in place and paint the raised areas using the stencil as a shield. Also paint the bow of the gift package White. Allow to dry.  
  7. Brush on Ice Glitter paint over all of the textured areas.

Finishing 

  1. Glue the package cutout to the “L.” Then glue to attach all letters together. If desired, refer to the photo for placement.
