INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Paint the entire canvas in Buff Beige, including the sides, using the 1” flat brush.
  2. Find an outline of a rabbit-shaped Peep® and print it to 5” x 2.5”. Trace and transfer the design to the desired locations on the canvas, making sure that the images are in line with each other.
  3. Paint each Peep® accordingly. Top row, left to right: Pistachio Mint, Pink Cadililac, a 1:1 ratio of Eggplant and Cotton Ball (mix ahead of time). Bottom row, left to right: Winter Blue, Chick, and Peach Silk. Let dry.
  4. Use a pencil to place a dot where the eyes and nose will be placed. Repeat pencil note for eyes if needed. Dip a cotton swab into Black Tie and dot onto the eyes and nose. Let dry. Erase any extra lines from outlines.
