INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Allow the paint to dry fully before continuing to the next step.

  1. Use the template and transfer paper to trace the Cheshire Cat's grin onto the hat. Trace over the grin with a black permanent marker to make the lines easier to see later.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Paint the entire hat (excluding the grin) with Purple Pizzazz. Let the first application dry; then add a second layer of paint.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Use painter's tape to make stripes on the hat. Paint three of the stripes with Dioxazine Purple. Remove the tape.
