  1. Wipe the table clean with a cloth. Use a template to create the circle, placing the circle off-center and tracing with either a white pencil or paint pen. Use a ruler to draw lines from the circle out to the edge of the table to create sun rays in varying widths.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Use painter's tape to mask off the sun rays (just a few at a time). Use a small brush for narrow areas and a medium flat brush to paint the wider parts in Innocence. Peel off the painter's tape.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Continue this process around the table, this time with Delicate. (Be sure the paint is dry before starting a new color)
    Step 2 Example
  4. Continue this process painting more sun rays in Escape and Cherish. Let dry.

  5. Use a medium brush to paint the circle in Cherish.
