instructions

  1. Using a craft knife, cut pieces of cardboard to make pieces to assemble into a house shape. Use paper bowls for windows, snack/cereal boxes for dormers, etc. Assemble the pieces at the edges using hot glue. Allow the glue to cool. Using the craft knife, cut a door in the front of the house large enough to fit a cat. Leave one side uncut so the door is still attached.
  2.  Mix Purple Iris and Pewter Gray (1:1) and paint the roof of the house using a flat brush.
  3. Add White to this mixture to create 2 lighter shades. Using a round brush, paint the lighter mixtures on the roof in a scalloped pattern. See project photo for reference.
  4. Mix Too Blue, Melted Chocolate and Pewter Gray (3:1:1). Use this mixture and a small round brush to paint very loose horizontal slats on the bottoms area of the house. See project photo for reference.
  5. Using transfer paper, transfer the provided patterns onto the house where desired.
  6. Paint the windows with Black and yellow Flame. Paint the cat with Black. Paint the spiderwebs with White and the fish skeleton with Black and White. Let dry.
  7. Using a flat brush, add Glitterific Hologram to the windows.
