Other Supplies

Rubbing alcohol
Stencil tape
Decorative mirror
Paper towels, Palette, Water basin

Instructions

  1. Clean the decorative mirror with isopropyl alcohol to remove any oils from the surface.
  2. Using stencil tape, mask off the mirror portion. Using a 1” flat brush, basecoat the frame of the mirror in gold. Let dry.
  3. Apply silver to a clean, dry, 1” flat brush, then wipe most of the paint off onto a paper towel. Use this brush to paint on top of the gold frame. This is called a “dry brush” technique. Continue doing this, adding more paint to your brush as needed, until you have achieved the desired dimension. Let dry.
  4. Using the medium lettering brush, paint the words “Merry and Bright” onto the mirror.
    1. Tip: Practice on paper before painting directly onto the glass. Let dry.
