Papaya: pumpkin

Follow these instructions to complete this project:

  1. Remove the Transfer Backer Sheet and “fuzz” the Transfer on a Fuzzing Cloth. Center the Transfer on your Pallet Sign; smooth out the Transfer to ensure that it has properly adhered and there are no bubbles or wrinkles.

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

  3. For best results when applying paste, divide your project into sections and use the chalk-and-pull method. To perform this method, apply paste one section at a time (see “Color and Placement Suggestions”) using a squeegee. Once you have chalked a section, and before the paste dries, peel back the Transfer (without removing it from the surface completely) and let the paste dry before continuing. Use a Quick Dry Tool to expedite the drying process, then lay the Transfer back down over the chalked section.

  4. Repeat steps as necessary, until the design has been completely chalked. Remove your Transfer from the surface and immediately clean the Transfer with cool water (do not let it soak). Dry the Transfer flat with the sticky side up.

  5. Allow the Transfer to dry completely before using it again to apply paste to your Chalkable Shape.

  6. Clean and care for the Transfer according to the instructions given in step 4. Once dry, reapply the Transfer Backer Sheet and store flat.

  7. To add extra dimension to your project, use hot glue to adhere the Chalkable Shape to the Pallet Sign.

  8. Display this award-winning piece with pride!
