Instructions

Note: Allow to dry between painting steps.

  1. Use palette knife to apply Dimensional Effects on ornament surface. Either let dry for 15-20 minutes or speed dry with hairdryer until surface is dry to touch but Dimensional Effects is still pliable (about one minute).
  2. Position and press stamp into Dimensional Effects. Let dry completely.
  3. Use #12 flat brush to coat ornament with White Pearl.
  4. Use palette knife to spread Galaxy Blue glitter over entire ornament.
  5. When dry, use toothpick to open hole at ornament top. Thread ribbon or cording through hole, tie and hang.
Helpful hint:

Dimensional Effects is normally smoothed out or texturized with tools and allowed to dry completely. When pressing stamps or objects into Dimensional Effects, it needs to be pliable. However, surface needs to be dry to touch so stamps or objects do not adhere to surface. Drying with hairdryer set on low or air drying works best. It is also helpful to dip stamp in water before stamping to achieve clean image.
