INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Apply Ultra Black Basecoat to the entire surface of the candlestick. Allow to dry. Apply a second coat, if needed, for coverage of the original surface.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Give dimension to the surface by applying different colors of paint to different sections of the candlestick: As shown, starting from the bottom, I applied Blue; then Violet; then Green; and then Violet again. On the bottom section, I built up colors by adding Green over the rounded areas and Violet in the textured areas.
    Step 1 Example
  3. I continued these techniques to emphasize the textures and the surface throughout the candlestick.
