INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: You can mix paint colors with Glitter Basecoat to save a step.

  1. Gather random sized jars, bottles, and vases to group together. (The ones I found were glass, but any type of material would work.)
    Step 0 Example
  2. Gather the 3/4" flat brush, bottles/vases/jars, and Glitter Basecoat.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Paint Glitter Basecoat onto the entire surface of each bottle/vase/jar with a flat brush. Allow to dry completely.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Paint Berry Red over the entire surface of one jar/vase/bottle. Allow to dry.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Paint True Blue over the entire surface of one jar/vase/bottle. Allow to dry.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Paint Primary Yellow and Festive Green over the entire surfaces of two of the remaining jars/vases/bottles. Allow to dry.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Paint Lavender over the entire surface of a jar/vase/bottle. Allow to dry.
    Step 6 Example
  8. On the Lavender jar/vase/bottle, paint on Divine Purple with a fan brush, coating the entire surface. Allow to dry. Apply another coat, paying attention to any areas that need more glitter. Allow to dry completely.
    Step 7 Example
  9. On the Berry Red jar/vase/bottle, paint on Bewitching Red with a fan brush, coating the entire surface. Allow to dry. Apply another coat, paying attention to any areas that need more glitter. Allow to dry completely.
    Step 8 Example
  10. On the True Blue jar/vase/bottle, paint on Enchanted Blue with a fan brush, coating the entire surface. Allow to dry. Apply another coat, paying attention to any areas that need more glitter. Allow to dry completely.
    Step 9 Example
  11. On the Festive Green jar/vase/bottle, paint on Green Potion with a fan brush. For the Primary Yellow jar/vase/bottle, paint on Magic Gold with a fan brush. Allow to dry completely. Apply second coats, paying attention to areas that need more glitter. Allow to dry.
    Step 10 Example
  12. Optional: To add another element to the glittered grouping, create some decorative pinwheels from old thrift store book pages. Use the provided pattern or measure out a square and cut into the square from each corner evenly.
    Step 11 Example
  13. Place a small spot of glue in the center of the square. (Tip: Less glue means the pinwheel will stick better and adhere faster.)
    Step 12 Example
  14. Fold over one edge of the triangle and stick to the center.
    Step 13 Example
  15. Continue to fold over edges of triangles and stick in the center with glue.
    Step 14 Example
  16. For the stem of the pinwheels, roll book pages tightly with a light amount of glue as you go.
    Step 15 Example
  17. Glue the pinwheel to the stem with a dab of glue.
    Step 16 Example
