INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Remove the product label from the jar; wash and dry thoroughly. Wrap a chicken wire stencil around the front of the jar and tape down with painter's tape.
  2. Use a cosmetic sponge lightly dipped in White. Wipe off excess paint on the plate or palette before applying to the jar surface. Do two light coats.
  3. Use a clean cosmetic sponge lightly dipped in Bright Yellow. Wipe excess paint on the plate or palette before applying to the jar surface. Lightly dab one coat.
  4. Use the same Bright Yellow sponge to add a small amount of Bright Orange and lightly dab over Bright Yellow, blending the two colors.
  5. Print off a bumblebee pattern or make your own by drawing a bumblebee on 2" x 2" piece of Contac® paper. Cut it out with X-Acto® knife and place on lid.
  6. Use a cosmetic sponge with White to basecoat the lid, wiping off excess paint on the plate or palette before applying to the jar surface.
  7. Use another sponge with Bright Yellow to dab on body.
  8. Use a #1 liner brush with Black to paint on the stripes, stinger, and detail on the wings, and to outline the entire thing.
  9. Bake the jar in an oven set on 325 degrees for 30 minutes for extra durability and to make dishwasher safe.
