INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Clean the jar with rubbing alcohol and let dry before painting.
  2. Use low-tack painter's tape to mask off the label area.
  3. Use a cosmetic sponge to pounce Sand inside the masked-off area. Repeat for opaque coverage.
  4. Using the same sponge, load a small amount of Dark Chocolate and pounce on the palette or plastic plate to soften the color. Lightly pounce the color around the edges of the label.
  5. Carefully remove the tape immediately.
  6. Trace and transfer the lettering by taping the pattern inside the jar.
  7. Use a liner brush and Black to do the lettering, label edges, webs, and spiders.
  8. Use a liner brush and Tuscan Red to paint the hourglass on the top spider.

HELPFUL HINTS

For clean edge when paint has dried in a taped area, run a craft knife or razor blade around the taped edge to release the paint.
