  6. Use scissors to cut out a small piece of black fabric into a square or rectangle. Use a #8 round brush to paint the teeth on the fabric in White. Turn the jeans inside out and use a #8 flat brush to add Americana Fabric Decou-Page to the perimeter of the rip/hole. Place the fabric with the teeth facing outwards, so they will show through the rip/hole.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Use a liner brush to outline the monster with dotted lines in Lamp Black. For a BOY MONSTER, you're done! For a GIRL MONSTER (optional): Add lashes and a bow. Use a liner brush for the lashes in Lamp Black; use a #8 round brush for the bow in a mix of (1) part Indian Turquoise and (1) part White.
