TECHNIQUE

  1. Apply a band of masking tape about 1.5″-2″ down from the lip of the vase.
  2. Turn vase upside down and apply 2-3 light coats of Champagne Silver, spraying approx. 12″ from the surface. Let dry between coats. When dry, remove tape to reveal glass.
  3. Cut a narrow piece of Styrofoam to snuggly fit low into vase. This will provide a secure base for the flower stems.
  4. Apply Flurry in short burst to select stock blossoms. It’s not necessary to spray the whole flower. Sprinkle Flurry sections with micro-glitter. Let blossoms dry approx. 8 hours.
  5. On selected ranunculus blooms, laurel foliage and pinecones, spray Glue for Glitter then sprinkle on crystal flakes. Let dry.
  6. Arrange blossoms and foliage, inserting into foam for secure placement.

Note: Read and follow manufacturer’s directions on individual products.
