- Box Bottom - Pour a small amount of Hot Pink into a foam bowl then load the FolkArt Ultra Dye Brush with the Hot Pink dye.
- Apply the dye to the unfinished surface of the box bottom. Allow to dye to soak into the surface, then wipe with a soft paper towel to remove excess dye, if desired. Allow to dry.
- Box Lid – Pour small amounts of Pucker Up, Lady Marmalade, Hot Pink, Turquoise and Purple Rain into foam bowls.
- Brush Pucker Up onto the box lid at the medallion flower center using a round brush.
- Next add Lady Marmalade in a circle around Pucker Up, allowing the two colors to touch, slightly blending. Continue with a circle of Hot Pink, blending the dyes.
- To complete the medallion flower, add Purple Rain touching the Hot Pink working towards the edge of the flower petals.
- Paint Turquoise onto the rest of the box lid including the sides, however, do not blend into the Purple Rain. Allow to dry.
- To seal and protect, apply a coat of FolkArt Ultra Dye Satin Varnish to the entire table top. Allow to dry and completely cure before using.
- To create a solid line of color without multiple dyes blending, create a masking line using stencil tape. Also try allowing each color to thoroughly dry before applying the next.
- When working with multiple colors, it is best to lightly spray clear acrylic sealer prior to brushing-on the FolkArt Ultra Dye Satin Varnish. This will set the colors prohibiting them from bleeding while wet with varnish.
