INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Test a spot on the back of the piece to see if a Stain Blocker is needed. If so, apply according to label instructions.

  1. First, grab a large container with a lid. Poor the entire jar of Lace into the container. Then, pour about 1/4 of the Vintage paint into the container (or about 8 tablespoons). Mix together thoroughly. Paint your surface in the mixture, applying one to two coats for complete coverage.
  2. Transfer the design, or freehand your own design, onto the front of the surface. If you have a back piece, transfer the design onto it as well.
  3. Mix together Preservation and Lace to create a medium blue. Paint the front of the flower in mixture; while the paint is still wet, mix a small amount of Lace into the center of the flower for dimension. Paint the center of the flower, the linework on the flower, and stems in Preservation. Using a small flat brush, use a small zig zag motion to create each leave on the stems below the flower in Enchanted.
  4. Paint the buds in the medium blue mixture. Mix in Lace at the center of the buds for dimension. Paint the daisies in Serene. Use a liner brush to paint the stripes in each petal in Preservation. Paint the leaves in Enchanted.
  5. Mix together Enchanted and Lace to create a slightly lighter color. Fill in large leaves with this color. Use a liner brush and Enchanted to make lines on leaves, as shown. Repeat same steps for buds as in previous step with Preservation.
  6. Optionally, repeat same process for the daisies as in Step Four. Repeat same process for leaves as in Step Three on the back piece.
