INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Work the paintbrush with the fabric for better coverage. Remove the pillow from the pillowcase before painting. Insert cardboard inside the pillowcase.

  1. Trace the provided boom box pattern onto the pillowcase with a fabric pencil.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Using the filbert brush, use Green (Neon) to outline the boom box; Pink (Neon) for the speakers; Yellow (Neon) Yellow for the controls; and Orange (Neon) for the cassette deck. Use Glow-in-the-Dark Paint for sound marks. (As you paint the pillowcase, turn it to keep from smudging paint lines) Let dry.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Apply a second coat on each area painted in STEP TWO, using a liner brush. (When you put on the second coat, dab with paint so that you get better coverage.)
    Step 2 Example
  4. Let pillowcase dry completely; remove cardboard insert; and re-insert pillow.

HELPFUL HINTS

Keep a cup of water and paper towel close by to rinse out the brush and wipe clean.
