Instructions

  1. Mix Peony with water, mix two (2) parts paint to one (1) part water.
  2. Using large Watercolor brush apply a wash of paint to entire box. Let dry completely and then sand lightly.
    1. Tip: Add a second coat if desired to get a more vibrant watercolor. Let dry.
  3. Mix Wedding Cake using two (2) parts paint to one (1) part water. Using Dauber, pounce color onto first layer of stencil as shown. Repeat design around box as shown.
    1. Tip: Remember when stenciling pounce into color but remove most of paint onto a paper towel so that paint does not bleed under stencil.
  4. Place second layer of stencil over the stenciled white flowers and stencil with Copper metallic (no need to mix with water).
  5. Repeat adding second layer to each design. Let dry.
