INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Dilute a small amount of Cotton Ball with a little water in a plastic cup or container and dry-brush the grapevine wreath, burlap ribbon, and wooden plaque with the mix. (To dry-brush, use a chip brush and dip only the tip into the paint; tap on a paper towel to remove any excess paint. Brush the paint onto the surface with a mostly dry paintbrush.)
    Step 0 Example
  2. Dilute a little True Blue with water and dry-brush the wooden stars.
