INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Paint one reindeer in Slate Grey and the other in Warm White, keeping the paint very flat and smooth. (This may require several coats. Allow to dry fully between coats so the paint does not become tacky and start to clump or move.)
  2. Cut the ribbon in various sizes. Fold the longer ribbon over and hot glue in place. (Here, two bows are shown, one with two long ribbon pieces that will be assembled with the center shorter piece, shown at left; the other with one long ribbon folded twice that will have the wings attached and the smallest piece placed in the center of the bow, shown at right.) Use hot glue to assemble all ribbons fully.
  3. Paint both reindeer in their corresponding color in Extreme Sheen, Silver or Pearl. (This will require several coats of color. Remember to allow to dry fully between layers so the paint does not clump or become tacky.) Attach the bows to the necks of the reindeer with hot glue.
