- Make sure that your project has been sanded with a 100grit sand paper after you have painted it with the desired chalk paint of your choice.
- Make sure your paint is even otherwise your dry transfer will not adhere to it properly
- Not do apply a wax or a sealer before you apply your dry transfer to your project
- Wipe your project with a damp cloth before you start to get rid of any dust that may be on your project
- Place your dry transfer with the printed side down on your project
- Secure your transfer with masking tape, but leave one side open to check every now and again
- Either use the back of a teaspoon handle or a pencil and begin scratching your dry transfer. You will notice if you lift it up on one side that the ink will then adhere to your painted project. You need to push relatively hard to get the ink off. If you lift your transfer to check & think has not come off, do not panic carry on scratching.
- Don’t be in a HURRY, enjoy the relaxing time
- When you are done scratching your transfer you will see that the transfer gives you a hand painted effect.
- Leave your transfer overnight on your project to give the ink time to adhere.
- Give your project a light coat of Plascon Clear Laquer spray over your transfer. Hold the can 30cm away when you give it a light spray. You can also use Artist Fixative available from all PNA stores.
- Leave it dry thoroughly. Once it has dried you may apply the sealer of your choice onto your project.
The lifespan of SCRATCH transfers is +- 2 months ( before use) and must be stored in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight. Once you have applied it to your product be sure to first apply artist fixative and when that is dry seal with any chalk paint sealer.
