  • Use stencils to create relief designs: Position stencil on surface. Tape or hold stencil with fingers to secure. Use palette knife to spread Texture Glass over open stencil area. Carefully lift stencil. Let dry.
  • Combing: Use Texture Tools to achieve a variety of designs. Apply Texture Glass on project surface. Use straight side of Texture Tool to smooth out. Choose Texture Tool shape as desired. Drag tool through wet Texture Glass. Circles are made by using one side of the tool as a pivot-just sweep tool around in a complete circle. Waves, zig-zags and more are done by moving the tool from side to side as it is dragged through the wet Texture Glass. Stripes and a woven look are easily accomplished by dragging the tool in straight or diagonal lines. Wipe tool on paper towel or cloth after each pass to assure clean images.
  • A smoother, more uniform look can be achieved by applying Texture Glass with a brush or palette knife. The straight side of the Texture Tools is also great for smoothing and leveling.
  • Antiquing Methods: Texture Glass may be glazed with Elegant Finish Glazes or your own mix. To make a glaze, mix equal parts water and DecoArt Faux Glazing Medium with up to 35% Americana color of your choice. Once your project is dry, brush glaze over surface. Immediately wipe excess glaze from surface with a soft cloth. For a more subtle appearance, dampen the cloth before wiping back.
