How do I prevent the Martha Stewart Crafts ® Jewelry enamels from leaking over the metal dividers of the enamel blank?
Let the enamel cure for a few hours before applying to the enamel blank. Be careful not to overfill any section. If the enamel begins to leak over the edge of one section into another, use the silicone tip brush to completely remove all of the enamel touching the ridge. The enamel will spread back to touch the ridge, but should not leak over again. If it does, continue wiping/removing with the silicone brush until it stops.
Can I mix Martha Stewart Crafts ® Jewelry enamels to create a custom color?
Yes! Simply mix color and activator of all the shades you want to use per the ratio recommended on the package. Then blend the colors together as desired. You can easily create an ombre effect by mixing various amounts of white.
How long does it take for the Martha Stewart Crafts ® Jewelry enamels to dry?
Depending on the humidity in your area, it can take anywhere from 24-72 hrs.
How do I remove Martha Stewart Crafts ® Jewelry enamels from the silicone work mat?
Let the enamel fully dry and then peel it off of the surface of the silicone work mat. If the enamel was mixed improperly and will not cure, wipe as much off as possible using a paper towel. Then use acetone (or acetone-based nail polish remover) and a paper towel to clean the rest of the enamel.
There are bubbles in the enamel on my Martha Stewart Crafts ® Jewelry piece. How do I remove them?
Using a straw, breathe warm air onto the surface of the enamel. The bubbles should rise to the surface of the enamel and disappear.
