INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Remove the toy box wheels or anything that might get in the way when painting it.
  2. Sand the wood to remove imperfections and areas that might splinter.
  3. Paint the entire outside of the box with Everlasting. Paint in "TOYS" on top of the lid using Relic. Accent the dots with colors of choice.
  4. After sketching out the lion and crown, paint in with Inheritance. For the darker areas around the eyes, use Relic.
  5. Outline lion's mane with Relic and shade in the darker areas.
  6. Use 24K Gold to add depth to the lion and his mane. (See photo.)
  7. Highlight areas with Everlasting and increase shading on the left side using Relic. Use Relic to finish the eyes.
  8. Finish up the crown by adding Relic and Treasure in the center and accenting with Everlasting, Relic, and 24K Gold.
  9. Paint the inside of the toy box with Treasure. Paint the wheels. (We painted 2 in Inheritance and 2 in Treasure.) Paint the knobs on the wheels with 24K Gold.
