*For this project we used the Posh Chalk Scarlet Harlequin decoupage as the framed image, but you can change this depending on your resources or style!

Step 1: Applying the WoodUbend Trim


The WoodUbend trim TR711 is a zip effect trim. This quirky piece is a narrow trim, meaning that it can be doubled along the edges of the photo frame.

To apply the WoodUbend to the frame, you need to follow the 5 simple steps of application.

Стъпка 1: Загрейте отливката си с помощта на топлинен пистолет, сешоар или тиган. При нагряване лайсната ще се огъне!

Стъпка 2: Нанесете доброкачествено лепило за дърво върху отпечатъка на отливката. Разнесете лепилото върху цялата повърхност с помощта на четка или пръст.

Стъпка 3: Натиснете отливката върху желаната от вас повърхност. Избършете излишното лепило с вода, бебешка кърпичка или Q-накрайник.

Стъпка 4: Загрейте отново отливката с помощта на топлинен пистолет или сешоар.

Стъпка 5: Натиснете отново корниза. Искате да видите изхвърляне на лепило изпод отливката. Това е знак за добра адхезия към повърхността. Отново можете да изтриете излишното лепило.

You will also need to mitre the WoodUbend to create a seamless finish on the edge. But don’t worry, this is an easy technique to master!

Make sure to leave excess trim over the edges of the frame. Once the trims overlap, we make sure to heat the corner well. Take care not to burn the WoodUbend, this is a thin trim and heats up very quickly! Once warmed up, we take a knife and cut diagonal to the edge of the frame. This will cut the top layer, and the bottom layer of the WoodUbend trims. Take off the excess trim that has been cut, and the remaining trim on the frame will fall perfectly into place.

Step 2: Apply the WoodUbend Corner Appliques

The thing that makes this project stand out is the layered WoodUbend. WoodUbend can be applied on top of other WoodUbend following the same steps of application as above. The WUB2094 is a great corner applique for this frame! We applied it to all 4 corners of the frame, onto the trims.

Step 3: Applying Posh Chalk Metallic Paste

Posh Chalk Metallic Paste comes in a large range of colours, that you can browse тук. For this frame, we chose the colour Black Carbon. This is a beautiful, deep black with greyish undertones that shines when it hits the light. Using the Posh Chalk mouldings brush, we apply the paste to the WoodUbend.

This paste has a whipped cream consistency and will hold it shape whichever way it is applied. This means you can stipple it, scrape it, or brush it depending on your desired effect. We wanted a plain, smooth effect, so we brushed it onto the surface using circular movements to ensure the paste covers the intricate details on the WoodUbend mouldings. If you need to thin the paste for flexibility, you can apply a small amount of water, or spritz the surface. This is a high coverage paste and you should only need one coat!

Step 4: Applying Posh Chalk Patina

Our Posh Chalk Patina is a great tool for bringing shadows into a project. We chose the Aqua Patina is Red Medium Cadmium. We dry brushed this shiny, highly pigmented patina, over the corners of our piece, dragging it towards the centre to achieve a red fade. This adds depth to the WoodUbend’s details.

Step 5: Applying Posh Chalk Metallic Pigment:

For the final touches, we wanted to highlight the frame. Our Posh Chalk Metallic Pigment is a fantastic tool for highlights, as it is the shiniest product in our range! We chose the colour Red Magenta. This beautiful red pigment has orange undertones, making it a perfect colour for Halloween!

Our pigments come in a powdered form. This is what sets this fantastic product apart from other, premixed ones on the market. The pigments must be mixed with Posh Chalk Pigment Infusor. This allows the user complete control over the consistency of the product in its liquid state. For example, you can create a highly pigmented paste for full coverage applications, or you can create a pigmented liquid wash to add gentle sparkle to any surface.

We created a medium coverage mix, and dry brushed it over the WoodUbend appliques and edges of the zip effect trim. This creates an incredible level of depth, transforming the frame from plain and boring, to spectacularly spooky!

Optional step 6: Adding the Posh Chalk Scarlet Harlequin Decoupage

The Ikea frame comes with a paper insert. Here at WoodUbend HQ, we hate waste! So, we took the insert and applied our Posh Chalk Scarlet Harlequin decoupage.

Decoupage should always be applied to a white surface, so using this paper insert is the perfect backing!

We take our Posh Chalk Pigment Infusor and a Posh Chalk Smooth and Blend Brush. We brush a layer of the Infusor over the paper, and then place the decoupage onto the surface. To remove any air bubbles, we smooth it down using a dry Smooth and Blend Brush. We cut the excess with a knife. Finally, we apply another coat of Infusor to seal the decoupage.

This simple idea is quick and easy, but allows you to create a completely unique piece, perfect for Halloween or a gothic style home! Halloween is a chance to get creative with colours and ideas to create quirky designs for the season!
