How To Use Belles and Whistles Products

Tissue Decoupage Paper


How to Apply:
- Apply a thin layer of Clear Coat Satin where you will be placing the Tissue Decoupage Paper - Using a Mister Bottle, lightly mist water on the back of the design. The light mist of water makes the paper pliable. DO NOT SOAK. Wait a minute or two for the paper to absorb the water then place it on the piece. 

- Using a wadded ball of plastic wrap, gently smooth out any wrinkles starting from top to bottom, lifting the paper up as you go to help smooth out the wrinkles. 
- Allow the tissue paper and clear coat to fully dry. After completely dry, finish with your choice of Dixie Belle topcoat 

Dixie Shine

How to Apply:

Apply Stick With Me glue following directions.

Position Dixie Shine over top of the glue, and burnish with a Dixie Belle Finishing Pad.

Remove and shine will be transferred onto your piece.


PLEASE NOTE: You need to use a Finishing Pad or burnishing stick to rub the shine off the transfer paper.
