NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Draw a heart on piece of paper to fit the size of the bucket.
  2. Cut the heart out and attach it to the bucket front using a piece of rolled-up tape in the center of the heart.
  3. Holding the bucket with one hand, press the sides of heart pattern down onto the bucket.
  4. Use the handle end of a paintbrush to dot an Americana Gloss Enamel color around the edge of the paper heart.
  5. Once the first set of dots has created a heart shape, carefully remove the heart pattern from the bucket.
  6. Using the dotted heart shape as a guide, choose a second color and add a second set of dots inside the first heart.
  7. Repeat this process, changing color for each set of hearts.
  8. Allow to dry completely before using. (Overnight is best.)
