INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Clean the brandy snifter with rubbing alcohol and dry well with paper towels or a soft cloth.
  2. Use Black to freehand branches around the bowl of the snifter. Let dry.
  3. Position the leaf pattern inside the snifter and secure with tape.
  4. Using Red and Purple, place a line of each paint where indicated on the pattern.
  5. While paint is wet, drag a #0 liner brush repeatedly through paint in diagonal direction toward leaf center first from one side and then from opposite leaf side.
  6. Repeat for each leaf, making some leaves smaller and changing leaf positions to make design more realistic.
  7. Allow to air-dry or follow label instructions for baking, if desired

HELPFUL HINTS

For eggshell finish, use a cosmetic sponge to tap paint on surface instead of using a brush.
