INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Make sure the planter surface is clean and dust free.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Tear painter's tape to make geometric designs. (I wanted the shapes to almost overlap so I did the designs one section at a time.) Press the tape firmly down with fingers.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Use a #12 flat brush and Coastal Surf to fill in the section. Rinse brush. Remove tape.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Tear new pieces of tape to make another shape that is asymmetrical. Press the tape down firmly with fingers. Use a #12 flat brush and Coral Sunset to fill in that shape. Rinse brush. Remove tape.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Make a third shape with painter's tape. Press tape down firmly with fingers.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Use a #12 flat brush and Honeydew to fill in the last shape. Rinse brush. Remove tape.
