Applications

Water varnish, Glossy / Matt

Apply on fully dry deco colours. Dry to the touch in 1 hour. Can be handled after 2 hours

Verdigris patina kit

After thoroughly shaking the bottle, apply the bronze undercoat to the surface of your choice: plaster, clay, wood, anti-rust treated metal coated with varnish, glass, cardboard... After it is completely dry, apply a layer of oxidising agent, without being excessive.

The verdigris patina appears gradually after 10 minutes and runs for several hours.

To fix the effect, spray on the Pébéo pastel and charcoal fixative (ref: 571140) after drying.

Image transfer

Apply 3 Image Transfer layers onto the printed image, waiting 30 minutes between each layer. Leave it to dry for 2 hours. Soak for a few minutes in warm water and then peel the image off using your finger, or with the help of a damp sponge. Rub gently to remove all paper, just leaving the image transferred to the varnish. The image appears transparent in the varnish. Leave it to dry for 2 hours, and then cut out the image if needed. Then, glue the transferred image onto the material by applying a coat of Image Transfer to the surface. Finish with a final layer of protection.

Mixtion

Apply to the clean, dry object to be decorated, with a brush or stencil, covering the whole surface of the pattern to be gilded. Leave to dry for about 10 minutes: the mixtion becomes sticky to the touch. Then place the gilding: gently lay the gilded leaves or flakes onto the glued surface and lightly brush with a soft brush (a fan brush, for example) to smooth the surface. Repeat the operation by working on small successive areas to prevent the mixtion from drying before the gilding is applied. Varnish to protect the decoration once finished.

Crackling kit

Apply a generous and consistent layer of Crackling Effect STAGE 1 to the object. Leave 2 hours to dry, and then apply a consistent layer of Crackling Effect STAGE 2. The cracks will begin to appear in 15 to 20 minutes. They are discreet and subtle. The size of the cracks depends on the thickness of the product used. To enhance the effect, apply patina with a cloth, focusing on the cracks: Burnt Umber Patina, if the general tone of the object is clear, and Naples Yellow Patina if it is darker. Leave to dry for 2 hours. Protect the cracks with an even layer of Crackling Effect 'STAGE 1'. Leave to dry

for 2 hours before handling.
