  2. Use the large flat brush to paint the top of the board "the sky" in Baby Blue. Use the large flat brush to paint the sea line in True Blue.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Immediately (while the paint is still wet) use the large flat brush and long, horizontal strokes to continue painting the sea in Teal Mint. Rinse brush and loading Pebble and Desert Sand simultaneously, add horizontal strokes moving from the very bottom, upwards. Then load brush with Bahama Blue and continue painting upwards, blending the colors as you go. Once dry, repeat the process to apply a second coat of all colors, creating a blended seaside effect.

  4. Position the "Seas the day" pattern and tape in place. Slip transfer paper under the pattern and trace design using a pen or pencil. Using Titanium White and a small, round brush, paint the words "Seas the day". Let dry and apply a second coat.
