Martha Stewart Crafts™ Glow-in-the-Dark Finish
Martha Stewart Crafts™ Glitter Finish is a waterbased indoor/outdoor brush-on finish. When used as a top coat, it seals and protects decorated surfaces while providing a bright, phosphorescent glow.
On what type of surfaces can I apply it?
Use on wood, papier-mâché, tin, terra cotta, canvas, plastic, plaster and artificial pumpkins. On glass and ceramics, use for decorative purposes only; surface is not washable.
Can I use it on a flexible surface?
No, bending may crack and peel the finish.
Should I shake the bottle to mix?
No. Do not shake the bottle. Roll the bottle on a tabletop several times to thoroughly mix.
What tools should I use?
Use a soft bristle brush. Using a foam brush may add air bubbles to your finish.
How should I apply it?
Apply to a clean, dry surface. Lightly brush on in smooth, even strokes. Do not over brush. Apply two or more coats, allowing 2–3 hours between coats.
Can I use this outdoors?
Yes, but keep projects in a protected area with no direct exposure to the elements.
If I seal the paint with Martha Stewart Crafts™ Glow-in-the Dark Finish, will it increase the glow?
Do I need to “charge” the surface to activate the glow?
Yes. Charge in sunlight or indoor light for 30 minutes. The glow will depend on how many paint layers were applied and length of charge.
How should I clean tools?
Clean tools while still wet. Wash with soap and water or with Brush & Stencil Cleaner: apply cleaner; work into lather, rinse in cool water, and let dry.
