INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Paint the entire frame in Watermelon Slice. Let dry. Once dry, apply several layers of Red Nebula, using a fan brush.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Using an X-Acto knife, cut a matching size piece of foam board as the backing of the frame. If there is a cardboard insert, use this for measuring or in place of foam board.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Use double-sided tape to adhere the decorative paper to the foam board or frame backing.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Remove the heart canvas from the hanging frame and paint in an ombre effect, starting with Baby Pink at the top, blending to Razzle Berry, and finally into Watermelon Slice.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Using a fan brush, apply Pink Cosmos to the Baby Pink area, blending down. Apply Supernova Berry to the Razzle Berry area, blending both downward and upward. Apply Red Nebula to the Watermelon Slice area, blending up. (This creates an ombre effect between all colors.)
    Step 4 Example
  6. Place the canvas heart back into the frame and hang from the larger Red Nebula frame. Replace the decorative backing.
