- First you will need to cut your transfer into smaller pieces along the cut lines and decide which you are going to use for your personalized beverage tub. You can mix and match any transfers that you like. They are also reusable 12 or more times so you can decorate tons of pieces.
- You will need to fuzz the transfer when using on metal so it does not stick too aggressively. Stick it to an old towel before adding to the metal.
- Press down well on the metal and make sure there are no air bubbles. Use your squeegee to press down to ensure everything is adhered well.
- Then add chalkology paste over the top of the transfer. Swipe across with your squeegee and remove any excess. Put the excess back in your container for use on your next project.
- Peel up the transfer immediately before the paste has a chance to dry. Repeat with additional transfers. Make sure one area is dry if you have to put a transfer over an area that already is decorated.
- You will need to wash your transfers immediately. See this post for washing instructions.
- Then allow everything to dry and add a burlap bow if desired. I used my bowdabra to make mine and you can see more about using that in this post.
- Just add in your drinks cause your personalized beverage tub is complete! Want to make your art permanent? Just use a spray sealer over the entire thing. Otherwise, you can erase this after the party and start again.
