INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Allow each layer to dry before proceeding to the next step.

  1. Apply Ceramic Tile to the largest cone. Apply one to two thin coats for the smoothest application.
  2. While the first cone is drying, paint the other cones in Juicy Melon and Aqua Waters. Let these dry completely before continuing.
  3. Using circle sponge pouncers, apply 24K Gold to the cones, using a large sponge pouncer on the Juicy Melon cone and a small circle sponge pouncer on the Aqua Waters cone.
  4. With 24K Gold and a liner brush, free-hand three lines on the Ceramic Tile cone with about 1" between the lines. (Wrap around till you come to the point of the cone.) Repeat, going the opposite way. (This will create a cross pattern in the front.)
  5. Dip each cone tip in 24K Gold; hold above the canister to allow excess paint to drip off.
  6. Using a craft knife, puncture two holes at the wide end of each cone. String twine through the hole and tie a knot on each side with plenty of twine to hang the planter. Add floral foam cones inside and secure your favorite dry flowers into the foam to complete your look.
