INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Paint the entire metal sheet in Turf Green using a 1" flat brush. Allow the paint to fully cure before the next step.
  2. Use painter's tape to mark the lines on the field. (Allow 1/4" for lines.) Use Cotton Ball to paint the markings on the soccer field. Use a round item to trace the center circle. Use a #1 round brush to paint.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Paint the wooden shape with Cotton Ball. When dry, use a pencil to free-hand the pentagons of the soccer ball.
