INSTRUCTIONS

NOTES: Let dry completely between painting steps. Stripes on tray are optional. We updated a previously painted tray that already had stripes.

  1. Use 3/4 flat brush and Yesteryear to paint tray.
  2. OPTIONAL: Mask off stripes with painters tape. Use 3/4 flat brush and Everlasting to paint stripes. Remove tape.
  3. Place paper face down and position tray on paper. Use pencil to trace around tray. Use scissors to cut inside pencil line. Place paper inside tray to check for fit. Trim with scissors, if necessary.
  4. Use 3/4 brush to apply Decoupage Matte inside tray bottom. Position and smooth out decoupage paper working from center out to edges to remove bubbles under paper. Apply another coat of Decoupage Matte over paper. Once dry, add additional coat, if desired.

HELPFUL HINTS

For uniform sheen, coat entire tray with Decoupage Matte once paper is dry.

When working with large pieces of paper, you can wet the decoupage paper before positing on surface. This relaxes the paper fibers and allows a smoother fit.

Papers are translucent so colors or patterns already on your surface may show through. For brightest colors, paint decoupage area White and allow to dry before applying papers.
