INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Sand the entire driftwood round surface, leaving the edges as is.
  2. Print the floral pattern to size and cut out. Adhere the pattern to the driftwood surface using Image Transfer Medium, laying the paper face down. Allow to dry overnight.
  3. Use a damp rag to gently rub the paper off the surface.
  4. Continue removing the paper with a damp rag until the entire surface is exposed. Sand away any unwanted areas.
  5. Using the print as a guideline: Paint the pink flowers in Wild Orchid; the darker pink spots in Persimmon; the light blue spots in Shoreline; the darker blue spots in Williamsburg Blue; and the green spots in Saffron Yellow. (Refer to the final photo for additional guidelines.)
  6. Print off the "bees and butterflies" pattern and use tracing & transfer paper to place them in various areas around the image. Lightly transfer. Using the fine liner pen, draw in the bees and butterflies. (See photo for details.)
  7. Print off the "sow" pattern to the desired size; place in the center of the driftwood; and transfer using tracing & transfer paper. Fill in the area using the fine liner pen.
