Project Instructions

Step: 1

Remove all packaging and cardboard insert from acrylic frame.


Step: 2

Determine desired positioning for image and adhere to cardboard insert; place back into frame.


Step: 3

Using non-stick craft scissors, cut and adhere piece of packaging tape or laminate to mask area of frame to leave opening for image.


Step: 4

Apply alcohol ink in chosen color to applicator felt; dab onto face and sides of frame. Add additional ink colors to achieve desired effect. Note: use blending solution to dilute and lighten tones.


Step: 5

For a polished stone effect, press Krylon® Leafing Pen onto frame over alcohol ink allowing liquid leafing to puddle, or draw “veining” through ink colors. Blend inks and leafing using the applicator to reach desired effect; allow to dry.


Step: 6

Remove masking from frame box. Further embellish frame by edging with Krylon® Leafing Pen, draw designs, swirls, etc. on top of inked frame.


Step: 7

Clean any ink or leafing that may have seeped under edges of masking with a cotton swab and Adirondack® Alcohol Blending Solution.
