Project Instructions

Step 1
Wash domes with soap and water, and let dry. Clean with alcohol to eliminate any remaining dirt or residue. Allow to dry.

Step 2
Using patterning tape, mask assorted widths horizontally around the glass dome lids. Set up spray paint kit using desired colors and Gloss Medium. Spray bands where desired on glass dome lids. Allow to dry.

Step 3
Remove embossed foil trims from sheet. Trim paper supports or bridges using scissors or a craft knife.

Step 4
Using the Martha Stewart Crafts® decoupage brush, apply one even, smooth coat of Gloss Decoupage Finish to the surface.

Step 5
Apply a second smooth, even application of Gloss Decoupage Finish to the back side of the embossed foil trim.

Step 6
Apply the decoupage trim to the surface. Press foil trim onto the surface, smoothing from the center towards the edges to remove air pockets and excess decoupage finish.

Step 7
Continue adding foil trims to the surface until the entire decoupage design is achieved.

Step 8
Once design is in place and smooth, allow to dry two hours.

Step 9
When completely dry, brush a smooth application of Gloss Decoupage Finish over the entire surface, being sure to seal all edges of the foil trims. Allow to dry two hours.

Step 10
Brush a second coat of decoupage finish over the entire surface and allow to dry two hours.

Step 11
