1. Using a flat brush, basecoat the trinket tray with Pure Black. Let dry and apply a second coat if needed.
2. Use a flat brush to apply a coat of Matte Terrazzo Sealer to the trinket tray. While the sealer is still wet, sprinkle an even layer of Gray Multi Terrazzo flakes onto the trinket tray. Let dry.
3. Apply a topcoat of Matte Terrazzo Sealer to the tray to seal the flakes. Let dry.


Glass Vase

  1. Using a flat brush, apply an even coat of Gloss Terrazzo Sealer to the surface of your vase. While the sealer is still wet, sprinkle an oven coat of Teal Multi Terrazzo Flakes onto the sealer. For larger vases, it may be best to work in sections so the sealer is still wet whn the flakes are applied. Let dry.
  2. Apply a topcoat of Gloss Terrazzo Sealer to seal the Terrazzo Flakes and let dry.


Copper Frame
  1. Use masking tape to tape a line across your frame.
  2. Use a flat brush to paint Treasure Gold Copper above the tape line. Let dry.
  3. Use a flat brush to apply an even coat of Gloss Terrazzo Sealer to the painted area. While the sealer is still wet, sprinkle an even layer of Terreacotta Multi Terrazzo Flakes onto the sealer. Let dry.
  4. Apply an even coat of Gloss Terrazzo Sealer over the flakes to protect them. Let dry.
