INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Sand the candlestick and egg surfaces to make sure they are smooth.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Paint the majority of the candlesticks in Snow White. (See photo.) Paint a stripe on the second lip, the narrower part toward the middle, and the bases in Coral. (See photo.)
    Step 1 Example
  3. Use a fine brush and Sea Breeze to paint stripes above the first set of Coral stripes. (Also do this on each side of the narrow Coral stripe toward the bottom.) Use a 1/4" and 5/8" sponge pouncer for the dots, making larger dots with Coral and smaller dots with Sea Breeze.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Add accent dots on the candlesticks with a black fine tip Sharpie. Paint the eggs Coral.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Complete the look of the eggs by wrapping a rubber band around the egg to create a straight line, trace with a pencil, and then paint the lines using Sea Breeze. Fill in with polka dots using the sponge daubers in varying sizes and Snow White. Finish off by cleaning up any ragged edges with the appropriate paint color.
    Step 4 Example

HELPFUL HINTS

Optional: Add a layer of Clear Ice Comet to all eggs for added glitz and glam.
