Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Use your 1” flat brush to paint your entire canvas with Ink Spot. Let dry.
  2. Cut out an 11”x11” piece of transfer paper. Tape the transfer paper to the sides of your canvas. Tape the mandala pattern down on the center of your canvas. Make sure the waxy side of your transfer paper is flush to your canvas. Tape the pattern on top of your transfer paper.
  3. Use your pencil to trace every dot on your pattern.
  4. Remove the pattern and transfer paper from your canvas.
  5. Use your dotter tools and FolkArt ® Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paints to make dots on your mandala pattern until your pattern is filled in. Use the appropriate sized dotter tool for each dot. Replenish your dotter tool with paint frequently- the more paint on your tool, the bigger the dot. For large dots, swirl your dotter tool in a circle to reach the desired size of the dot. See project photo for reference. Let dry.
