Instructions

STEP 1

Project Notes: Before applying paint to your items, make sure the surface is clean, dull and dry. Always spray outdoors or in a well-ventilated area and read the label for application and safety instructions. Krylon® Glowz® dries to the touch in 15 minutes and can be handled after an hour. Krylon® Fine Stone dries to the touch in 15 minutes and can be handled after 24 hours. 

STEP 2

Spray the coffins with a white base coat. Let dry.

 

Shake Krylon® Glowz® can for 1 to 2 minutes prior to spraying, and occasionally during use. Test spray in an inconspicuous area for compatibility before spraying the item. 

 

Hold can 10" to 12" from surface, then spray coffins in a sweeping motion, side to side, with slight overlap in coats. 

STEP 3

Apply several light coats for a better finish. Wait one minute between coats. Set coffins aside to dry.

 

NOTE: Surface will glow after several light coats and exposure to light. Adding more paint does not increase the glowing effect. Do not try to achieve full coverage as paint is very translucent. 

STEP 4

Shake Krylon® Fine Stone finish for 1 to 2 minutes prior to spraying, and occasionally during use. Test spray in an inconspicuous area for compatibility before spraying the item.

 

Hold can 10" to 12" from surface, and spray headstone in a sweeping motion, side to side, with slight overlap in coats. 

 

Apply multiple thin coats to avoid runs and drips. Let dry.  

STEP 5

Once dry, position stencil letters on headstone and cover any exposed surface. Spray with Krylon® Glowz® Green for glow-in-the dark words to appear on headstone.

 

Arrange graveyard as desired.
