INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Paint the top panel in Lavender and the bottom panel in Raspberry Sorbet. Mix the two previous colors 1:1 and use to paint the center panel. For the two remaining panels, split the Lavender/Raspberry mix into two: add more Lavender to the mix for the panel directly next to the Lavender panel; add more Raspberry Sorbet to the mix for the panel directly next to the Raspberry Sorbet panel.
  2. Print the provided patterns to the correct size; cut each part out individually; and place on the boards. Tape the printing down with painter's tape to keep it in place. Slide transfer paper underneath the printed image; trace it with a pencil to transfer the image onto the boards.
  3. Paint in the previously drawn areas with Black. (See patterns for details.)
