How to Use STICK: Your Ultimate Guide to Super Sticky Magic!

Hey there, creative souls! Ready to dive into the world of STICK, our super sticky, amazing adhesive? This guide will walk you through everything you need to know to get started, with tips and tricks to make your projects shine. Let's get sticky!

What is STICK?

STICK is your new best friend for powder coating just about anything with our fabulous powders and pigments. Whether you're using our eco-friendly glitters or vibrant color powders, STICK helps you achieve deep, pure colors without mixing them into paint.

Safety First!

  • Face Mask: Always wear a face mask when working with loose pigment powders to avoid inhaling them.

Getting Started

  1. Prepare Your Surface: STICK works on almost any surface—plastic, cardboard, wood, and even glass!
  2. Apply STICK:
    • Pour a small amount or dip a soft brush directly into the bottle.
    • Paint your surface with STICK. It looks white and milky but dries clear, so don't worry!

Pro Tips:

  • Double Coat: For porous surfaces like wood, apply two thin coats to ensure even coverage.
  • See Your Progress: The milky appearance helps you see where you've applied STICK, so you don't miss any spots.

Time to Dry

  • Let STICK dry for 10-15 minutes. You'll know it's ready when it turns completely clear.

Powder Coating

  1. Tools of the Trade: Use a foam brush or a cotton bud (Q-tip) if you don't have our special wand.
  2. Apply Your Pigment:
    • Dip your brush into the pigment and gently dab it onto the STICK-coated surface.
    • Make sure every bit of STICK is covered with your pigment or glitter.

Pro Tips:

  • Eco-Friendly Glitter: Our Dazzle Eco Glitters are compostable and contain no microplastics.
  • Even Coverage: Ensure full coverage for a long-lasting, non-sticky finish.

Creative Ideas

  • On Wood: Use the pinkest pink powder to see vibrant results on wood surfaces.
  • On Toys: Transform toys with a glittery finish or vibrant colors.
  • On Canvas: Create stunning art pieces by applying pigments directly onto your paintings.
