Q: How do I create an oilcloth finish on my project?
A:
If you want to create an oilcloth finish on your project, use the Martha Stewart Crafts Oilcloth Decoupage Finish with your fabric cut-outs.
First, prepare your project surface. Then using the Martha Stewart Crafts Soft Bristle Decoupage Brushes or the Martha Stewart Crafts Squeegee, apply one even, smooth coat of Martha Stewart Crafts Oilcloth Decoupage Finish to the area on the selected fabric surface that you would like to decoupage. For the strongest bond, allow it to dry slightly (about 2-3 minutes) before placing your decoupage fabric cut-out. To place your decoupage fabric cut-outs, apply a smooth, even coat of Martha Stewart Crafts Oilcloth Decoupage Finish to the backside and place onto the pre-decoupaged surface. Use your fingers, a Martha Stewart Craft Squeegee or a Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage Brayer to press fabric onto the surface. Smoothing from the center towards the edge of the fabric to remove air bubbles and excess decoupage finish. Wipe away excess decoupage with a damp paper towel. Once in place and smoothed, allow to dry 2 hours. When completely dry, brush a smooth application of Martha Stewart Crafts Oilcloth Decoupage Finish over the entire project. Allow to dry 2 hours and repeat. If decoupaged item will serve a purpose other than decorative, a third application of Martha Stewart Crafts Oilcloth Decoupage Finish is recommended. To cure, air dry project for 72 hours in a mild dry room. To expedite curing, allow project to dry a minimum of 24 hours, then iron (no steam) using a pressing cloth with a small weave on low-medium setting for 30 seconds in a small circular motion. Do not use a towel as a pressing cloth, as it can leave marks or stick to the decoupaged project.
