  1. Paint the three canvases in Snow White. Allow to dry and re-apply a second coat of paint.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Paint a canvas with a layer of Matte Medium and allow to dry thoroughly.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Once the Medium is completely dry, paint the surface with True Blue, Tropical Blue, and Snow White, quickly to keep the paint wet. (See photo.)
    Step 2 Example
  4. Flick water onto the canvas with a paintbrush or fingers while the paint is still wet. Allow the canvas to sit a minute or two. Blot the water off with a rag, being careful not to wipe.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Repeat the steps for the two other canvases.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Using a paintbrush, dab Snow-Tex around the bottom edges of the canvas to make it look like snow is gathering around the bottom edges. Using the provided pattern, use Snow-Tex to paint one snowflake in the center of each canvas. (Three different snowflake patterns are provided.)
    Step 5 Example
  7. Use Snow White to paint smaller snowflakes around the bigger snowflakes. (See picture for placement.) Allow to thoroughly dry. Place on a wall or over a mantle for a wintry scene.
