"MY" Paste ©

About “MY” Paste ©!

I introduced it originally as Shannon B’s dimensional paste almost 20 years ago. But last year I decided to give it another try and  everyone kept saying it that such and such...etc. So I decided to rename it “MY” Paste ©! I know you will like it, it is smooth and dries hard but yet it is flexible. It is non toxic, water based and conforms to ASTM D4236, it does have a slight fragrance to it, it is a premium molding paste that is easy to use. You can paint over it as soon as it dries (about 10 min or use a hair dryer) with any brand of acrylics, oils, watercolors or enamel paints. You can mix in any acrylic just remember it lightens that color. This air drying product is stable for use on all manner of decorative products. DO NOT mix with oil based products. It can be used on wood, canvas, fabric, tin, paper, metal glass. Etc.

Preparations of surfaces for Acrylic Painting—Prepare each surface as you would when painting with any acrylics. Except for glass, I recommend Etchall © first.

Wood—Sand surface and base coat with a good acrylic paint. Apply several coats until surface is smooth and even but not to shinny. Dry well between coats.

Glass—Prepare surface to be piped with a glass painting medium or Etchall ©

Ceramic Bisque— Basecoat with any acrylic, to make it a bit easier apply any all purpose sealer spray or brush on.

Paper—Pipe directly onto the surface over or under the painted areas

Canvas—Pipe directly onto the surface under or over painted areas. I do like DecoArt Chalky Gesso -Sand after a couple of coats.

Candles—Brush surface with candle painting medium allow to dry then paint and pipe

Glazed Ceramics—Prepare surface with any all purpose sealer or Etchall © or just go for it!

Fabric—Use fabric painting medium when applying paste as an option or pipe directly on to fabric or on acrylic color. Paste will NOT wash off of fabric.

“Please note that the paste will be dry to the touch within a few minutes, but for a solid finish it will complexly dry  in a few days sometimes up to a week.”

Remember:

1. Do not hold the bag at a right angle (90 degrees) to the surface, do not push directly on the tip. It will stop up the tip and “MY” Paste © will not come out. It’s a mess. It this does happen you will need to take the tip off and use a cleaning swap to push out the blob now inside your tip..

2. If your piping line splits or skips you are piping to fast. Slow down and squeeze.

3. As your bag of paste becomes less, fold over the top of the bag with a rubber band. Or replace with more paste.

4. Work from left to right and top to bottom. If you are left handed it would be from right to left and again top to bottom.

5. Turn your project NOT the piping bag. Do this often to ensure your are comfortable and that you are piping ok.

6. To correct any issues you have several options. You can use a China Painting tool called a wipe out tool. You can use a damp q-tip or damp brush. Don’t let it sit to long.

7. Application depends on YOU! You can use a brush, a palette knife, your fingers!

Storing of “MY” Paste © . Keep in an area that is room temp. Not to hot not to cold. LOL . Always clean the lip of your jar or you will never get it open. I place a piece of plastice wrap
