INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

    Step 0 Example
  2. Use a 3/4" flat brush to paint alternating sections with Santa Red and Snow White. Let dry completely.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Use the pencil to draw the detail lines as shown on the Snow White sections.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Use a #2 round brush and Festive Green to paint in the detail stripes.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Use a flat brush to apply a ring of water about 1" from the plaque edge. While wet, pick up a small amount of Snow White on the corner of the brush. Apply Snow White by sweeping around the wet area to create a highlight.
    Step 4 Example
  6. To keep the letters straight, use a ruler and chalk pencil to lightly draw the lines where the lettering will go.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Draw the lettering on with a chalk pencil or use your favorite stencil. Use a brush and Lamp Black for the lettering. (Or use a cosmetic sponge to apply Lamp Black if using a stencil.)
    Step 6 Example
  8. Fold strips of tulle like a fan. Staple or tape one end to hold together.
    Step 7 Example
  9. Position and secure the tulle on the plaque with hot glue.
