How To Guide
Hokus Pokus new “Décor-Weave” can be applied to natural wood, painted furniture or a surface of your choice.
Requirements for Application
A piece of furniture or project which has been completed to a smooth finish, painted or sanded natural wood
400 grit sandpaper
Clean, wet cloth
With the iron on a COOL, DRY (NOT STEAM) setting, gently iron the back of your Décor-Weave design to remove initial fold lines.
The prepared furniture piece: wipe down with a wet cloth to remove all the dust.
It is vitally important to remove all excess dust before applying any Hokus Pokus Décor-Weave to your project. Splinters or chipped paint, no matter how small, can spoil the surface and texture of your Décor-Weave project.
All painted surfaces must be 100% dry to avoid the Hokus Pokus Décor-Weave from lifting or creating air bubbles.
Always plan beforehand where you are going to place your Hokus Pokus Décor-Weave and cut to size, if needed.
Applying the Décor-weave: Apply a base coat of a good quality polyurethane water-based sealer, while still wet, place the Hokus Pokus Décor-Weave in the desired place, ensure all air bubbles are removed by rolling with a brayer.
Wait about 30 min then apply a 1st coat of sealer over the Hokus Pokus Décor-Weave, wait until 100% dry then apply a 2nd coat and 3rd coat, ensure the surface is completely dry as per manufacturer’s instructions – don’t rush this phase.
Once 100% dried and cured, gently sand the whole design with 400 grit sandpaper to a smooth texture. Clean with a wet cloth.
