  • Orange Sherbet (DA510)
  • Peach Silk (DA542)
  • Shrimp (DA541)

Other supplies

  • water container
  • palette or plastic plate
  • paper towels
  • liner brush
  • wax paper (or freezer paper)
  • #10 flat brush
  • fine point permanent marker (black)
  • baking sheet
  • marker (water-based; black)
  • 3/4" round magnets (24 to 32, depending on size of baking sheet)


NOTES: Let dry completely between painting steps. Make sure the baking sheet is magnetized.

  1. Place wax paper (or freezer paper) on the baking sheet. Place the magnets over the paper.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Use a #10 flat brush to paint the magnets in Shrimp, Chartreuse, Coastal Waters, Orange Sherbet, Sky Blue, and Peach Silk. (Paint an even number of the same color.)
    Step 1 Example
  3. Use a liner brush (or the back end of a brush handle) to dot the perimeter of the magnets in Cotton Ball.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Use a black fine point permanent marker to write numbers: two of each number for the same color magnets. (I used a total of 14, but the number is optional and may vary according to the size of the baking sheet.)
    Step 3 Example
  5. Remove the wax or freezer paper and magnets from the baking sheet. Use a #10 flat brush to paint stripes around the perimeter of the sheet alternating Chartreuse and Coastal Waters. (The stripes will be the same size/width as the brush.)
    Step 4 Example
  6. Here's a game in progress! See how to play under "Helpful Hint".
    Step 5 Example


HOW TO PLAY (This can be played alone or with several players): Place the magnets randomly on the baking sheet, making sure all the numbers are "paired”. Take turns connecting the numbers with a water-based marker.

HOW TO WIN: The player who has connected the most sets of numbers without touching any lines or other magnets wins.
