DecoMagic Brush Cleaner

DecoMagic Brush Cleaner is an all-purpose, non-toxic cleaner that removes paints from brushes, hands, stencils, and fabrics. It works with both wet and dried paint and leaves brushes soft and pliable. DecoMagic Brush Cleaner can also be used as an all-purpose jewelry cleaner.

USAGE TIPS:

  • For dried paint in brushes, saturate bristles and let brush sit in cleanerfor a few minutes. Work paint out from the bristles and repeat until clean.
  • Do not use on pearls or costume jewelry.
  • Gently scrub stencils and rinse with warm water.

One Step Crackle

One Step Crackle provides an aged or modern crackled effect in one easy step. It is easier to use and less expensive than other two-step crackle products. You can antique with One Step for an old world effect or color wash with it for a newer, trendier look. One Step's crackle effect can be controlled by the thickness of application.

USAGE TIPS:

  • Do not overwork. Apply a generous coat and leave it alone to self-level and crackle.
  • Apply over a painted or sealed surface
  • To speed up dry time, use a hair dryer on the low setting and hold three feet away from the surface to prevent 'wrinkles' in the finish. Note that cracks will be smaller when dried this way.
  • Thin application will produce small crackled effects and a thick application will produce large ones.

Multi-Purpose Sealer

Americana Multi-Purpose Sealer is designed to adhere to all surfaces and ideal for indoor and outdoor use. Its superior adhesiveness, smoothness, and durability allow it to be used on virtually any hard, paintable surface. Dries to a clear finish.

USAGE TIPS:

  • Thin with water for more absorbent surfaces
  • For slick metal surfaces, clean and scuff to a rough finish before applying
  • For glazed ceramics or glass, apply one coat to surface before painting or mix equal parts paint and sealer
  • Speed up basecoating by mixing equal amounts of paint and Multi-Purpose Sealer and apply to the project's surface
  • For outdoor sufaces, mix it into the paint so no varnishing is necessary

Pearlizing Medium

Turn regular acrylic paints into paints that shimmer.

Perfect Crackle

Perfect Crackle is a two-step crackle product that dries clear, making it ideal for creating a cracked porcelain or aged, crackled effect over painted decorative designs or plain base-coated surfaces.

USAGE TIPS:

  • To antique, apply Gel Stains once the crackle has dried, then wipe off excess with a soft cloth
  • Dry naturally, which may take more than 24 hours. Do not force dry with heat or air.
  • For tiny cracks, apply light even coats of both steps, and do not overwork.
  • For large cracks, apply two to three heavy coats of Step 1. When Step 1 is completely dry, apply one coat of Step 2.
  • Practice on a sample piece to determine the preferred crackle effect.
