How to Use Pentart Velvet Powder?

  1. Paint the surface a similar color to the powder color of your choice. That way, when applying the powder if you miss a spot, it won’t be visible. 

  2. Apply glue to the surface.

  3. Generously, sprinkle Velvet powder over the glue.

  4. Press powder down with your fingers or a clean dry brush. Don’t roll it around, otherwise, it will clump together.

  5. Tap the excess off onto a piece of paper and return the excess back into the container. 

Tip: Velvet Powders can not be sealed. Otherwise, they will lose the velvet texture.

Other ways to use Velvet Powder

  1. Using Velvet Powders on top of Heavy Body Gel will give a thick and puffy appearance.  You can create a unique embossed design by putting heavy body gel through a stencil, then sprinkling Velvet Powder on top.

  2. Velvet Powder can be used on glass but only for decorative purposes. If it’s handled too much, the Velvet Powder will eventually come off.

  3. Another way to use Velvet Powder is on a canvas bag, using Fabric Medium as your glue.
