instructions

  1. Clean the surface of your candlesticks with soap and water to remove any dust.
  2. Using a flat brush, basecoat the candlesticks using FolkArt Multi-Surface Indigo Night. Let dry and apply a second coat if needed.
  3. Tape off different area on the candles. You can make striped patterns or color blocking. Paint inside the taped areas using FolkArt Multi-Surface Magenta, Wisteria, Teal and FolkArt Treasure Gold. Let dry.
  4. Before removing the tape, score the edge with a craft knife to prevent the paint from peeling away from the candle. These candles are for decorative purposes only.
