Instructions

Nursery Project Instructions:
1.    Paint the frame with Couscous.  Allow to dry.  Add Lemon Drop on top of Couscous.

2.    Stencil an initial on the glass of the frame in Pea Shoot.

3.    Paint the letters on fabric container and banner Summer Haze.  Allow to dry and then tape off borders and paint Pea Shoot.

Preparation Instructions:
1.    Prewash all fabric to remove manufacturer’s sizing.  Dry thoroughly being careful not to use fabric softeners or dryer sheets.  If needed, iron wrinkles without using a spray starch.

2.    Position large paper stencil on project surface where desired; secure in place using stencil tape.  
3.    For glass, wash glass in warm soapy water to thoroughly clean; rinse well and allow to dry.

4.    Moisten paper towel with rubbing alcohol and wipe over cleaned glass to remove any remaining dirt, grease or soap film.  Allow to dry.

Stenciling Instructions:
1.    Squeeze a small amount of paint onto a foam plate or palette.

2.    Mix two parts paint with one part Martha Stewart Fabric Medium.  Using the fabric medium when painting on fabric will help to keep the decorated fabric soft when dry.

3.    Load stencil brush with paint and fabric paint mixture by dabbing into the puddle.  Dab a few times more on a clean spot on the foam plate to ensure you have the entire stencil brush properly loaded with paint.  Holding the stencil brush as you would a pencil, begin dabbing up and down over the opening of the large paper stencil.  Continue stenciling until the entire design area has been painted.  Set the stencil brush aside and lift the paper stencil to reveal the stenciled letter.

4.    Continue stenciling each letter.

5.    To add a painted border, mask straight lines using stencil tape.

6.    Paint the border using the stencil brush and paint mixture.  Allow to dry thoroughly.

7.    Set completed project aside to thoroughly dry.

Curing Instructions:
1.     All project surfaces painted with Martha Stewart Crafts Multi-Surface Paints should be cured to increase the paint’s durability.  Follow the Heat Setting to Cure Technique when decorating fabrics.  

Heat Setting to Cure Technique – Allow your decorated fabric to air dry 24 hours then heat set using either one of two recommended methods.

Dryer Method – Turn garment inside out; place item in dryer for 30 minutes on highest setting allowed for the type of fabric used.

Iron Method – Place decorated item right side up on ironing board; cover with dry pressing cloth.  Set iron to highest setting allowed for fabric used.  Place dry iron (no steam) on area pressing for 30 seconds, lift iron moving to another area until all sections are heat set.
