Instructions

  1. Basecoat the plaque with Midnight Blue.
  2. Hot glue various silk flowers, leaves, and eucalyptus to the shelf as desired.
  3. Paint everything, shelf included, with a good layer of Petal Porcelain, and allow it to dry overnight.
  4. Spray paint the shelf and flowers.
  5. After everything has dried, spray the candle shelf with two coats of Gloss Sealer to make sure nothing get scratched or cracked.
  6. Optional: Glue feathers among the flowers.

Tips!
- Don’t feel like everything has to be symmetrical. To make it whimsical, consider lilac or pink hues for your project.
- Petal Porcelain is excellent for smoothing out the rough texture of silk flowers often have. By using matte paints and sealers, you get a fashionably modern, leather look.
- You may need as many as three coats of spray paint to really get down in the nooks and crannies of the flowers: make sure to not get too close (you don’t want the paint to run!), and leave enough time between each coat to dry to the touch.
