INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Basecoat the pot rim Sweet Pea.
  2. Basecoat the remainder of the pot Larkspur Blue.
  3. Measure and mark off with pencil 1/2" from the bottom of the pot rim and 1/2" from below the rim. Paint strip of Mistletoe Green above the drawn line at bottom and below the line at the top of the pot.
  4. Using Sweet Pea, paint a wavy 1/2" border above painted Mistletoe Green line along bottom.
  5. Transfer the bunny pattern onto the pot twice with tracing and transfer paper.
  6. Paint the bunny solid Cloud White; use Carnation Pink to shade between the ears, below the feet, and around the tail.
  7. Use Wrought Iron Black thinned with water to make lines and details for the bunny ears, feet, and tail.
  8. Transfer the carrot pattern twice onto pot with tracing and transfer paper. Basecoat the carrot Pumpkin; highlight one side with a small amount of Cloud White mixed into Pumpkin.
  9. Paint the carrot top with Sweet Pea and highlight the edges with Mistletoe Green.
  10. Using thinned Wrought Iron Black, add detail lines to one side of the carrot and edges of the carrot top.
  11. Dip-dot Cloud White dots along the top of the pot and along the bottom. Using Mistletoe Green and the #4 round brush, stroke the carrot tops along bottom rim of pot.
  12. Let pot dry thoroughly. Tape over the drainage hole, partially fill the inside of the pot with play sand, and add a votive candle.

HELPFUL HINTS

Use play sand to stabilize the votive candle inside the pot.
