INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let the paint dry completely before continuing to the next step.

  1. Enlarge the shapes from the card suits template to the desired size and print them out. Cut out the shapes and trace them in pencil on the umbrella.
  2. Fill in one black spade with Black Tie, using a flat angled brush to outline the shape and then filling it in. Let the first application of paint dry before adding a second one.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Paint one half of the umbrella with Black Tie, outlining the shapes and painting around them. 
    Step 2 Example
  4. Paint the hearts and diamonds with True Red. (Two applications of paint are enough to provide beautiful, even coverage.)
