  • Paper Towels and Newspaper

 

Instructions:

  1. Cover the work area with craft or newspaper.
     
  2. Position the KraftyBlok™ so that the hole is at the top. Plan your design. You may use the design pictured or you may want to create your own pattern.
     
  3. Wipe KraftyBlok™ surface with rubbing alcohol to remove any oily residue.
     
  4. Spray back of the birds & berries stencil with stencil adhesive spray.
     
  5. Place the stencil on KraftyBlok™ surface.
     
  6. Pour a small amount of paint colors on your palette. When loading paint on pouncers, load it sparingly and dab off excess.
     
  7. Lightly dab with pouncer on a thin layer sycamore bark paint and stencil the branches first. Apply a second coat if necessary. Remove stencil and let dry.
     
  8. Follow the same steps for each stenciled part of the design (letting paint dry in between each step). Stencil leaves with spring pasture paint. Stencil birds with geranium paint. Stencil flowers with jacaranda paint.
     
  9. Paint a small dot in the center of each flower using beetle black paint. Let dry. Paint a smaller dot inside of the beetle black dot using wedding cake paint.
     
  10. Pour the glass marbles into the hole at the top of the KraftyBlok™.
     
  11. Insert your silk flower stems into the marbles in the KraftyBlok™ and arrange. Enjoy!
