How should I prepare my surface before I apply Rub-On Patterns?
Wood – Sand smooth with fine grit sandpaper, wipe away sawdust.
Tin – Wash with soap and water, wipe with white vinegar dampened cloth, rinse well and dry.
Terra Cotta – Wipe clean, seal pot interior with clear acrylic spray before potting plant.
Canvas – Wipe primed canvas clean, if unprimed, apply two coats of gesso.
Paper Mache – Wipe clean with damp cloth.
Plaster – Wipe clean with damp cloth.
Plastic – Wash with soap and water and allow to dry.
Once surface is prepared, basecoat in color of choice and allow to thoroughly dry. If desired, create a patterned background such as sponging, striping, slip slap, flyspecking, etc. before transferring design patterns.
