|5 - 10 oz. jars ,$4.99 each =$25.00 total|
|The oil-based polyurethane is available in gloss or satin sheens.I chose satin. The smooth, self-leveling formula applies easily . May apply up to 3 coats with allowing 2 hours dry time between coats and 4 to 6 hours on final coat. Approximate coverage 500 to 600 sq. ft. per gallon. Clean brushes and tools with paint thinner or mineral spirits. It was $47.99 at our local Ben Franklin.Make sure to have at least one window open while using this product, it is very smelly. You only need this for a warm amber almost antique color. This product will not be enough of a top coat to seal glitter.I learned that the hard way.It also will not bring out the sparkle in the glitter the way the epoxy coating does.If I were to do this project again, I would save the 50 dollars and skip this step.|
|I used this to clean the floors .$3.89|
|I used this to plaster all the seams between the tiles, and also as plaster for the raised stencil later on, cost was around $5.00.|
|This is the wall/floor stencil I used for the raised detail around the decoupaged roses. Hobby Lobby $16.99. I had this stencil already, so I'm not adding this to my cost of project.|
This is my icky vinyl peel and stick tile floor before....
No painting all these flowers...I made copies of roses and doilies on my computer using regular copy paper.A regular stencil was used with lightweight spackling to give a raised 3D dimensional effect of old plaster.
|This is where the cat's food and water dishes will go.|
* 1 gallon oil porch and floor paint to coordinate with colored glitter
* 1 bucket and sponge mop for cleaning
* 1 gallon of oil-based clear polyurethane varnish(use this only for antique color, as it is not thick enough to coat glitter.It also doesn't make the glitter shine enough. You must use the epoxy coating to get the sparkle!)
|$96.00, BUT WORTH EVERY PENNY !!!|
2. let dry.
3. Patch up any holes or ridges with a lightweight spackle and let dry.
4. Pour porch and floor paint into one paint tray, use a brush to paint the edges of the room.
5. Now use one of the rollers to paint a section of the room.
6. This is where you want to lay down anything your going to decoupage onto the floor. I made copies of some doilies, and rose pictures on my computer. No need for fancy paper, regular copy paper works just fine.You can just press lightly onto the paint so it sticks.
7. Throw handfuls of glitter in the air so it lands evenly on the wet paint. I tried a shaker, but it didn't go fast enough for me.
8. Keep working by sections, make sure to cover in between sections with glitter so it is uniform.
9. Apply as much or little glitter you want.
10. Let dry 24 hours
11. This is the time you want to add any raised detail .I used a stencil and some Spackle for some dimension to each side of my decoupaged roses .This is optional. Let this dry for 2 hours minimum.
12. Open can of varnish, pour in paint tray and use roller to apply an even coat. Let dry 2 hours in between coats. Repeat until desired color is achieved.It will give you almost a parchment paper color when applied over white..
13.Now you are ready to apply the epoxy finish that will make that glitter pop!! Mix as directed on the box,and apply with a paint roller just as you did for the paint and varnish.This is well worth every penny, you won't believe the finish!
14.Let dry at least 10 to 12 hours before walking on it.
I LOVE THIS STUFF.
