FolkArt Acrylic Paint - Calico Red, Grass Green, Titanium White
Mod Podge – Glitter Silver
Tilano Decorative Image Transfer Kit
Wood tray, no larger than 8.5″ x 11″
An image to transfer – I based mine on the Martha Stewart Moneybags template
Small square of green felt
2 red buttons
Stencil tape – 1/4″
Flat Paint Brush
Pencil or pen
These instructions are in your kit, but I’ll give you the short and sweet version. Print the image you would like to transfer onto the computer paper provided. Prepare the tray and the image for transfer by coating with a thin layer of the included medium. Allow to dry (time specified in the kit) and cut out image.
Tip: if there are words on the image, print BACKWARDS. The image flips when placed down on a surface.
Place the image face down. Spread thoroughly (spreader included). Wipe the spreader off after each swipe – you don’t want to get medium on the back of the image. Let dry for time specified (I believe it’s 3 hours).
Use the stencil tape to section off the stripe pattern. Secure down and paint your stripes. I did the top green stripe first, allowed to dry and then did the bottom red stripe. Peel the paint away and touch up if you need to. I’m going to give you my biggest stripe secret – I ALWAYS have to do some touching up. So don’t feel bad if you have to.
