Zip Dry™ Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives

Instructions:

1. Seal the insert and frame then sand lightly. Basecoat the  both items with White Wash. Apply one coat of matter varnish to entire surface.

2. Place the stamp onto an acrylic handle. Dampen sponge and remove as much water as possible. Load with paint. When using paint on stamps it is important that you do not overload the image. Pour a puddle of paint out on the palette. Pounce the sponge into the paint and then on a clean area of the palette. When you look at the bottom of the sponge it should be covered by paint but you should still be able to see the texture of the sponge. Now quickly pounce the loaded stamp in the center of the insert. If you don’t like what you have stamped simply wipe it off with a wet wipe! Since you already have a coat of varnish on the surface, it will clean up easily.

3.  For ease, use a #3 round brush wash in all the colors referring to the photo for placement.

5. Shade each color with full strength paint using a flat brush.  Allow to cure and coat with matte varnish.
