INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let paint dry between steps and coats.

  1. Remove glass from frame and thoroughly clean glass with paper towel and rubbing alcohol.
  2. GLASS - Mask off stripes vertically in 2" increments with painter's tape.
  3. Start by painting every other stripe. Using a sea sponge lightly dab on yellow frost and pink frost. (clean sponge before changing colors)
    Step 2 Example
  4. Wait two hours (or longer) and mask off the remaining stripes with 2" painter's tape. Using a sea sponge lightly dab on purple frost and Turquoise frost. (clean sponge before changing colors)
    Step 3 Example
  5. Center and place the stencil on the glass, secure the corners with painter's tape. Use a pencil and only trace through outer line of the oval. Remove Stencil. Using a 3/4 flat brush paint the oval with two coats of Lace.
  6. Place stencil over oval and secure the corners with painter's tape. Using a cosmetic sponge lightly dab Relic through the stencil.
  7. FRAME - Using 3/4 flat brush paint the frames in "rose pink" (mix 3 parts Lace with 1 part Romance)
    Step 6 Example
  8. Using 3/4 flat brush paint Frame with two coats of Lace. Once completely dry, lightly sand so the "rose pink" shows through distressed/sanded areas.
    Step 7 Example
  9. Place glass back into frame and secure in place.

HELPFUL HINTS

When stenciling, dab cosmetic sponge on your palette/plate to remove excess paint, before dabbing on stencil.
