INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: The entire design can be traced as the pattern may be seen through the white paint. However, you may want to wait to trace the arms, hair, and other details after the painting is complete.

  1. Enlarge or reduce the pattern to fit the canvas surface. Trace and transfer the provided pattern.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Paint the background Shoreline and the robot Snow White.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Using Americana Glow colors of your choice, paint the head, eyes, body, hands, legs, feet, and heart. (Apply three coats, allowing to dry between coats.)
    Step 2 Example
  4. Use a permanent black marker to outline the robot and add the details.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Position the Kaleidoscope Border stencil randomly on the background. Use a cosmetic sponge wedge to tap Snow White in the open stencil areas.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Optional: Use a Glo in the Dark Writer to dot the stenciled dots and to outline the arms and hair.

HELPFUL HINTS

For best results, apply Americana Glow in multiple, thin coats.

Light recharges the glow so be sure to hang the finished canvas where it is exposed to light.
