instructions

  1. Using a small flat brush, paint small brush strokes on a black gift bag using Treasure Gold in Gold and Rose Gold.
  2. To paint the tissue paper, lay a piece of tissue paper (1 per bag) flat on your workspace.
  3. Pour some FolkArt Acrylic Pure Black into a paper cup and add a splash of water. Stir.
  4. Dip one paint brush into the paint mixture and, holding another paint brush underneath (the paint brushes should make a + sign), tap the brush with the paint onto the brush without paint in the direction of the tissue paper. This will make paint splatters on the tissue.
  5. When all of the paint is dried, assemble the bag and tissue paper with your gift inside and embellish with a pom pom.

Yes, FolkArt Treasure Gold can be used to color block an area. It can also be used to basecoat larger areas, such as a piece of furniture, for a very dramatic metallic effect. When color blocking, use stencil tape or painter’s tape to mask the areas to be painted.
 
Yes, when desired, FolkArt Treasure Gold can be thinned with water, to create fine, detail decorative lines or strokework. However, if diluted too much, the opacity of the metallic paint will be reduced, and therefore, a second application to obtain a solid, opaque metallic effect is required.
When thoroughly dry, projects completed using FolkArt Treasure Gold, will not require a topcoat or varnish. FolkArt Treasure Gold manufactured in the multi-surface formula, is self-sealing and will dry to a luscious metallic finish. However, for extra protection, should a surface be sealed with either a clear acrylic spray sealer or a brush-on varnish, please keep in mind that the metallic luster or sheen will change depending upon the type of finish or top coat that is applied.
