instructions

  1. Start by working from the center of the mushroom and making a pattern outward.
  2. Apply slight pressure with fingers onto the sides of the bottle and fill in your first layer of dots using the script tip.
  3. Once you finish the first layer of dots, allow to dry completely.
  4. Once dry, you can go in with smaller dots added onto your larger dots to create a layered effect.
  5. If you need to, prime your paint bottle by squirting out a little bit of paint onto a paper towel before applying your paint to the surface.
  6. If you have any bubbles, you can use a sewing needle to pop them while the paint is still wet.
  7. Complete your pattern by alternating different colors from the FolkArt Dots kit and have fun.
  8. To create a fun floral pattern, start off by creating simple dots in a circle, allow to dry and then add the center dot.
