How to use
Glitterific Paint does not require much surface prep; make to have cleaned your project
surface thoroughly before applying.
Wood – If desired, sand smooth any rough areas prior to painting. Apply Glitterific directly to raw wood or to a wood surface that has already been stained or painted a dark base colour. When base-coating, Glitterific appears most reflective over a dark base colour. You can also use a colour close in hue to the Glitterific colour or one of the metallic FolkArt Color Shift Acrylic colours.
Terra Cotta – Wipe to remove dust. If the terra cotta has been previously used, be sure to thoroughly clean in warm soapy water to remove all dirt deposits and allow to dry completely. If the terra cotta flower pot will be used with a live plant, seal the interior prior to planting so water does not seep through, possibly blistering the exterior paint.
Metal and Tin – Metal that has been enameled or sealed should be washed in warm
soapy water, dried and then wiped with white distilled vinegar to remove remaining
grease or soap residue.
Canvas – It is best to basecoat the canvas with a dark FolkArt Acrylic background
colour that might be complementary to the colour of Glitterific Paint prior to painting on canvas.
Papier Mache – Wipe over surface with dry paper towel to remove dust. Basecoat the
surface with a dark FolkArt Acrylic paint.
Rigid Plastic, Glass, and Ceramics – Wash surface well in warm soapy water, rinse and
allow to dry thoroughly. Wipe over surface with rubbing alcohol to remove remaining
soap or grease residue.
Bisque or Unglazed Ceramics – Wipe to remove dust or loose dirt.
Fabrics – No prep is required as the surface should be used for decorative purposes
only. The completed project will not be able to be washed.
Tips and Tricks
Apply Glitterific to a surface using either a foam sponge brush or a soft Taklon bristle brush.
After loading the brush with Glitterific paint, position the brush horizontally low to the surface.
While lightly brushing the surface, “lay” the paint down. Try not over-brush or over-stroke the surface, as doing so will move the glitter particles around.
For more reflective effects, FolkArt Glitterific Paint should be applied over a surface basecoated with a dark colour. Use either FolkArt Acrylic Paints or FolkArt Multi-Surface Paints to basecoat the surface with either Licorice, Pure Black, or a dark colour that is similar to the glitter color. For amazing glitter effects, apply multiple coats for maximum glitter coverage.
