Instructions

Painting Instructions:

Candles

  1. Using a foam pouncer, apply three to four coats of glitter paint by dabbing straight up and down to the surface of the candle.  Allow each application of glitter paint to dry before applying the next.
  2. Continue painting until each candle is glitter painted to your liking.  NOTE:  Do not apply paint at the top of each candle near the wick.

Small Plastic Animals

  1. Using a foam pouncer, undercoat each animal with a coat of pearl paints – either Copper, Yellow Gold or Sterling.  Dab the loaded pouncer straight up and down to apply the paint.  Allow to dry.
  2. When dry, paint a couple coats of glitter paint over the pearl.  Paint Copper glitter over Cooper pearl, Florentine Gold glitter over Yellow Gold pearl, and Antique Silver glitter over Sterling pearl.  Allow each coat of glitter paint to thoroughly dry before applying the next.
