INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Cut velvet approximately 3 inches bigger than your frame. Wrap one end over the frame and secure in place using a staple gun. Continue this process on all 4 sides, making sure the velvet is stretched taut.
  2. Take a portrait style photo of your cat and print it according to the size of your canvas. Transfer image on to the velvet using the white paint pen. Use a medium flat brush to paint the outer areas of the cat's face in Bright Orange leaving some areas of the velvet exposed. Saturate your brush in water to blend the paint smoothly onto the velvet. Using the same brush paint the middle and muzzle area of the cat in White. Use a small brush to start adding accents and details in Purple Cow.
