INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Completely read these directions before starting. Cover your work area with newspaper to protect work surface. Collect and place all supplies needed on your work surface.
2. Clean the KraftyBlok™ with a glass cleaner. Dry completely with paper towel.
3. Chose an image you wish to paint on the block. For inspiration, use a photograph, an illustration, or your own creative idea.
4. Select the acrylic paint colors necessary to paint your chosen image. Craft acrylics are affordable and come in a large variety of colors.
5. Have your brushes cleaned and ready – have your water cup filled in order to clean brushes while painting.
6. Use painter’s tape and mask off the paintable area of your KraftyBlok™. This will create a clean, crisp border separating your painted area from the rest of the glass block. 7. Remember you are painting on glass, a non-porus surface. Therefore, paint will not be absorbed. As a result, you will need to paint in layers and allow sufficient time for each layer to dry. Use water a bit more sparingly when painting on glass, too much water and the base, layers will begin to breakdown. There is no one basic rule to painting – everyone has his or her own style. Have fun!
8. When finished, allow to dry 24 hrs.
9. Follow manufacturer’s instructions. Seal your masterpiece with a matte finish, acrylic fixative spray. Allow to dry. Carefully and slowly, remove the painters tape from the KraftyBlok™ surface, making sure not to remove parts of your painting.
10. Clean and polish your painted block and display!
