Project Instructions

Step 1 Base coat birdhouse as follows and let dry:

Front – Marmalade

Sides and back – Wedding Cake

Roof – Wedding Cake

Base – Surf

Trim – Wedding Cake

Step 2 When dry, sand smooth. Reapply base colors and let dry.

Step 3 To create an overall floral pattern on sides and back, position small flower stencil where desired and stencil design randomly with Marmalade.

Step 4 Stencil a larger floral design on the front of the birdhouse with Wedding Cake.

Step 5 Apply Weather Crackle Effect over the roof. Allow to dry.

Step 6 When crackle effect is dry, brush Surf liberally over crackle effect in a slip-slap motion. Do NOT over-stroke as crackling will begin immediately. Allow to dry.


Use one small stencil such as a flower design to create an overall pattern; position the stencil at different angles to create the desired look.
