Airbrushing with Marabu Decorlack Acryl 

Using Marabu colours the airbrush technique offers a variety of great design possibilities on various substrates: from paper, wood & craft materials to glass & porcelain to textiles & silk.

Beautiful patterns or sharp outlines can be realised using this technique; photographically accurate pictures can be enhanced with special effects such as metallic gloss or mirror reflexes. The colour is mixed with the airflow in the spray pistol and is applied in extremely thin layers by constantly moving your hand. By varying the aperture of the nozzle, the distance to the painting substrate or by the use of stencils, there is no limit to your artistic scope.

General Advice: Please follow the instructions for airbrush technique with Marabu Decorlack Acryl depending on paint type.

Further advice:

  • Stir well before use or, if necessary, strain the colours.
  • Choose the appropriate thinner for colour and substrate.
  • The colour should be sufficiently liquid that it can pass through a teastrainer.
  • The substrate should be dust and grease-free.
  • Use self-adhesive templates.
  • Ensure that the workplace is well ventilated and that spray mist is avoided.
  • When changing colours, use the appropriate cleaning agent for the spray pistol – in the case of water-based Marabu-colours the appropriate cleaning agent is simply water.
  • After use carefully clean all equipment with the appropriate cleaning materials.
  • Always carry out pre-trials.

Serviette Technique

Cut out your required motif. Prime an earthenware pot with Marabu Decormatt and Marabu Serviette varnish & glue, put this motif onto the pot, then re-apply the paint – your masterpiece is now finished! We will show you how easy it is to use this découpage technique.

In addition to this, Marabu offers three special, water-based media so that new, fascinating ideas can be converted into reality: crackle medium for the crackling technique, textile medium for fabrics and porcelain medium for decorative objects made of porcelain, ceramic and glass. Further instructions can be found on the product page for Marabu Serviette varnish & glue.

You need:

Serviettes of your choice, Marabu Decormatt Acryl or Marabu Decorlack Acryl, Marabu Serviette varnish & glue, matt or gloss, a soft bristle brush, a cup filled with water, a pair of scissors, any objects made of wood, papier-mâché, polystyrene, terracotta, glass, plastics, modelling pastes, stone etc.

This is how it’s done:

  1. Prime the object you would like to decorate with a Marabu Decormatt Acryl or Marabu Decorlack Acryl colour shade that matches the serviette motif.
  2. When you have cut out the serviette motif, remove the first, printed coat carefully and put it on the object you are decorating. Always ensure the primer is totally dry first.
  3. Now cover the whole motif together with the background with Marabu Serviette varnish & glue. Always paint from the middle of the motif to the rim. Allow to dry – finished!

Crackling using the serviette technique

Beautiful crackles can be achieved using Marabu crackle medium, clear.

Instructions:

  1. Prime with Marabu Decormatt or Marabu Decorlack Acryl; dry with a hair dryer.
  2. Apply the medium evenly; dry with a hair dryer.
  3. Apply Decormatt or Decorlack very quickly; the crackle effect will occur immediately. Allow to dry for at least 1 hour.
  4. Continue with the serviette technique.

Hints & Tips:

  • The thicker the uppermost layer, the more distinctive the crackles will be; for fine crackles the paint has to be applied in thin layers.
  • The character of the crackle effect can be influenced by the direction the uppermost layer of the paint is spread: straight spreading in one direction results in vertical or horizontal crackles; a cloud-like effect is achieved by circular paint applications. Simply experiment!
  • If the crackles appear too large, the crackle medium and the corresponding paint colour can be re-applied. The crackles should be much finer.
  • Crackle effect can be obtained without a primer: simply start with the crackle medium.
  • Only apply the uppermost layer of paint once – painting over this while it is still wet will destroy the crackle effect.

Glazed painting technique

Glazes are colour layers which make the substrate transparent – a very interesting thing, e.g. for wood to accentuate the nature of the grain.

Besides a covering paint application, glazed painting is even possible using Decormatt Acryl. For this, Decormatt Acryl is thinned with some water. A final application with colourless Marabu varnishes will protect your designs.

Transparent painting/glazed painting technique

Glazes are colour layers which make the substrate transparent – a very interesting thing, e.g. for wood to accentuate the nature of the grain. But even structured papers (e.g. Japanese paper) and the like can be effectively “dyed”. No limits are set to your taste and imagination! Besides a covering paint application, glazed painting is even possible using Decormatt and Marabu Decorlack Acryl. For this, the Decormatt/Decorlack Acryl paint is thinned with some water. A final application with colourless Marabu varnishes will protect your designs.
