INSTRUCTIONS

NOTES: Apply the Galaxy Glitter gently; don't brush hard as you will end up moving it around rather than fully coating the surface. A fan brush works best for applying Galaxy Glitter. Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Basecoat the piggy bank in Bubblegum Pink, applying as many coats as necessary to achieve desired opacity. Let dry between coats and at the end.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Basecoat the wooden crate in Bubblegum Pink and Purple Pizzazz. (See photo for color placement.)
    Step 1 Example
  3. Cover the chalkboard with painter's tape. Basecoat the frame in an ombre effect of Indian Turquoise and Purple Pizzazz. (See photo.)
    Step 2 Example
  4. Let all surfaces dry completely. (It is very important, when applying the Galaxy Glitter, to let each coat fully dry before applying the next. For each surface, I used about four-five coats for maximum coverage.) For the piggy bank, apply several coats of Pink Cosmos. Repeat with Ultraviolet for surfaces painted with Purple Pizzazz and Milky Way Blue for surfaces painted with Indian Turquoise.
