INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Tape off the unicorn's horn.
  2. In small cups, mix equal parts of Pouring Medium with each of the paints: Snow White, Ultramarine Blue, and 24K Gold. Stir thoroughly. Pour the mixes into a larger cup; do not stir. (The proportions may vary according to taste.)
  3. Set the unicorn on four to five upside-down cups inside the aluminum foil pan. Pour the paints/Medium mix from the large cup over the top of the unicorn. (Turn the unicorn as needed to make sure the mix covers the unicorn completely.) Let dry.
  4. Basecoat the horn in Marigold. Allow to dry.
  5. Glitter the horn using Champagne Starburst and a fan brush. Allow to dry and re-apply.
  6. Sand the wooden plaque.
  7. Paint pour on the plaque with Red Violent, Saffron Yellow, and Titanium White using the same technique as the unicorn. (See STEPS TWO and THREE.) Allow to dry.
  8. Use E-6000 Glue to adhere the unicorn to the plaque. Let dry.
  9. Once dry, place on a wall in a children's room or in a classroom as a magical decoration.
