5. Use the paint brush to apply an even layer of the white paint onto the teapot stamp. Transfer the image onto the antique bronze colored paper square and then carefully lift the stamp. Allow the stamped image to dry thoroughly before continuing with the next step.
6. Add Super-tack glue to the areas of the teapot that must be highlighted with the craft foil. Allow the Super-tack glue to dry for about 20 minutes. When the glue is wet, it is blue, but when it is dry it becomes transparent.
7. Press foil down on the glue. Remember that – of course - the pink side of the foil must be on top. Rub the foil over the areas where you have added glue with the Super-tack glue pen. Carefully lift the foil. On the areas where you have added glue with the Super-tack pen, some of the foil will stay behind, thereby highlighting certain areas or features of the stamped teapot.
8. Now give the teapot an aged look. Use the Fineliner Pen to make a few small black spots on the teapot. Immediately brush over the spots with white acrylic paint the paint will cause the black ink to flow, so that it will look a sif the teapot is made form aged porcelain. Allow to dry thoroughly.
