instructions

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Clean the brass candlesticks with warm soap and water to remove any dust or oils from the surface.
  2. Mix Fire Coral, Wicker White and Coffee Latte in different amounts to get different shades of coral.
  3. Paint the candlesticks using a small flat brush. Use stencil tape to mask off sections to do more than one color on a candlestick.
  4. Using a small round brush, paint loose designs on the tapered candles.
