NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Transfer the provided pattern to the tea towel. Use a small round brush to paint one of the stars in Santa Red.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Use a small round brush to paint two stars in Primary Blue and two stars in Bright Yellow. Let dry.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Mix all three colors (Primary Blue, Santa Red, and Bright Yellow) with about 1/3 water. Use a medium round brush to apply the watered paint in the corresponding colors, creating a watercolor effect. Be sure to let the paint bleed outside the lines. (See photo.)
    Step 2 Example
  4. Make pastel green and pastel blue by adding White to Primary Blue and Apple Green in a ratio of 3 parts Primary Blue or Apple Green to 1 part White. Mix well. Add about 1/3 water and dab a small round paintbrush randomly throughout the tea towel.
    Step 3 Example

HELPFUL HINTS

Place cardboard under tea towel to paint won't seep down on your workspace.
