Step-by-Step Instructions

  1.  Basecoat the inside of the back of your frame and let dry.
  2. Use a ruler, or eyeball the placement of your guitar picks on your painted frame back. Use a pencil to mark small dots that will dictate where your guitar picks will lie.
  3. Roughen the surface of your guitar picks with fine grit sand paper. Plastic is notoriously difficult to paint on- this will help the adherence of your Multi-Surface paint to the plastic picks.
  4. Paint your picks with your favorite colors of Folkart Multi-Surface paint and let them dry.
  5. Place your dry, painted guitar picks over your pencil marks and adhere them with Sobo Glue.
  6. Let the Sobo Glue dry then place the backing of your frame back into the frame.
