  2. With the round brush paint the hearts as follows: Neon Pink with Light Gray, Neon Orange with Wicker White, and Jamaican Sea with Neon Pink.
  3. When the hearts are completely dry use a ¼” stencil brush and lightly pounce the Hologram glitter to the heart.
  4. Paint 2 small eggs Wicker White.
  5. Tape off the middle of one egg and paint the bottom Citrus Green and the top Neon Pink.
  6. Tape off the other small egg and paint the bottom Daffodil Yellow. When the Daffodil Yellow is completely dry tape on the yellow side where the colors meet. Tape three stripes on the Wicker White sections and paint with Neon Pink.
