    Step 1 Example
  3. Paint the angel with a coat of Antique Gold, allowing some of the Dark Scarlet to show through. Paint the front of the angel in Antique Gold. Let dry. Once dry, dry-brush Cotton Ball onto the front, allowing some of the Antique Gold to show through.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Add batteries for the lights. Make a cover for the back of the angel by tracing the angel with a pen onto patterned scrapbook paper. Use scissors to cut out the angel from the patterned paper.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Attach the patterned paper angel to the back of the angel for sizing. Take off the paper backing and paint tabs in Dark Scarlet. Let dry. Once dry, re-insert the backing.
