Glue Embossed Floral Frame

 


Materials

  • Wood frame
  • Pencil
  • Aleene’s® Super Thick Tacky Glue™
  • Scotch tape (to create nozzle on glue)
  • Spray paint – flat white
  • Decorator craft chalk – assorted colors
  • Brush - hard bristle (stencil type brush works great)
  • Paper towels
  • Spray fixative for chalks


Instructions:

  1. Draw design onto frame with pencil.
     
  2. Place a tape nozzle onto the bottle of glue. See technique for help with this.
     
  3. Draw with glue along the pencil lines. Let dry completely.
     
  4. Spray paint the entire frame and dried glue with white spray paint. Let dry.
     
  5. To color with chalk, rub the brush over the surface of the chalk, then rub onto frame where desired. Continue to add different colors of chalk to the frame until entire design is chalked.
  6. Spray entire chalked surface with spray fixative.


Heidi’s Designer Tip: To keep your chalk colors bright, be sure to wipe off the brush with the paper towel between colors. This will keep your colors from becoming “muddy”.
