  2. Paint the inside of the lid and the outside rim Plantation Pine. Repeat for a second coat.
  3. Paint the top of the lid Honey Brown. Repeat for a second coat.
  4. Using the #6 flat brush, paint a Plantation Pine border around the top of the Honey Brown lid.
  5. Use the #0 liner brush to paint plaid on the outside of the box: paint lines using Plantation Pine, then Honey Brown, followed by Sand, and finishing up with Dark Chocolate.
  6. Trace and transfer the bear silhouette or use a bear cookie cutter to create the pattern. Use a #6 flat brush and Lamp Black to paint the bear.
  7. When everything is dry, give the entire box, inside and out, and the lid two coats of DuraClear Matte Varnish.
