September Club Couture - Hello Autumn // Come chalk with me!

We love autumn! September’s Club Couture™ Transfer features foliage and trendy lettering that make us want to jump into a pile of crunchy fall leaves. Your Club Couture™ shipment also includes: Currant Jam, Guava, and Shimmer Harvest paste singles. We paired this month’s Transfer with our Couture Gallery™ Aiden Style White Frame (Black, 9” x 12”, item S183127) to make the classic autumn colors pop!

-Shimmer Harvest: Branches and dots

Follow these instructions to complete this project:

1. Remove your Transfer from its packaging and carefully peel off the Transfer Backer Sheet.

2. “Fuzz” the Transfer by gently pressing it onto a Fuzzing Cloth and carefully pulling it upward. This makes the Transfer easier to remove from the surface after you’ve applied the paste.

3. Center the Transfer on the surface and smooth it out to ensure it has properly adhered and that there are no bubbles or wrinkles.

4. Knead your Chalkology Paste Singles. Cut open the corner of each packet and squeeze the desired amount of paste onto a Color Tray, using a new tray for each color.

5. Use a small amount of paste to smooth over the Transfer, beginning at the top (see “Color and Placement Suggestions”, and keep in mind step 7). To chalk the fine details, use a Multi-Tool.

6. As you work through each detail and color, squeegee the excess paste off as evenly as possible and scrape it back into the tray. The more excess paste you remove, the better the result will be.

7. For best results, use the chalk-and-pull method: Chalk the top half of the design and peel back only that portion of the Transfer to let the paste dry on the surface before continuing (using a Quick Dry Tool is a great option). This allows you to work in smaller sections without having the paste dry in the screen, making the Transfer difficult to remove. To prevent any stretching in the Transfer, peel from the center or from both corners, instead of peeling diagonally.

8. Once the top half of the design is dry, ensure the bottom half of the Transfer is still secure on the surface and repeat steps 5 and 6 for the rest of the design.

9. Before the paste dries, remove your Transfer from the surface and immediately clean the Transfer with cool water (do not let it soak).

10. Dry the Transfer flat with the sticky side up.

11. Reapply the Transfer Backer Sheet and store flat.

12. Relish your creation!
