INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  2. Apply Dioxazine Purple in an arch on the bottom of the frame. Quickly add drops to the paint of rubbing alcohol to achieve desired look. (See helpful hint below.)
  3. Repeat the previous step with Cobalt Teal Hue, Yellow Green Light, Primary Yellow, Pyrrole Orange, and Primary Magenta.

HELPFUL HINTS

It is important to work quickly. Load the brush with paint, dip in water, and apply quickly. It is best to have a brush in one hand and the eye dropper of alcohol in the other.
