INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Some steps may require several coats. Use a hairdryer to speed up wait time.

  3. Use Pink Explosion to cover the second flower shape under the eyes; the nose shape; the bottom layer of the flower-shaped eyes; the small flowers next to the large leaf shape; one of the dots underneath the same shape; and the center of the flowers at the back of the head.
  4. Use Radiant Yellow to paint the top layer of the flowers on the eyes; the bottom layer of the flowers at the back of the skull; the center of the small flowers next to the large leaf shape; one of the dots underneath that shape; and the small dots on the flower shapes directly under the eyes. Fill the very center of the eyes with Knockout Blue.
