How to Use Stick With Me and Dixie Shine.
Now that you're familiar with the benefits of Stick With Me and Dixie Shine, let's dive into the process of using it for your next furniture or crafting makeover project:
Step 1: Preparation
Before you start applying Stick With Me, you'll need to ensure your surface is clean and dry. Remove any dust or dirt, and if necessary, sand the surface to create a smooth, even finish.
Step 2: Apply Stick With Me
Using a brush, apply a thin, even layer of Stick With Me to the surface of your chosen project. Be sure to cover the entire surface you want to apply Dixie Shine to ensure proper adhesion. Let Stick With Me set up for about 20 minutes, but don't worry, it should still be tacky.
Step 3: Position and Press
Carefully position your Dixie Shine on the surface, making sure it covers everywhere the Stick With Me has been applied. Press down firmly to create a strong bond between the Dixie Shine and the surface. Position Dixie Shine over top of the glue, and burnish with a Dixie Belle Finishing or Burnishing Pad. You can use a clean toothbrush to burnish recessed areas.
Step4: Be sure to keep all the scraps as these are amazing for layering the colors of Dixie Shine.
