Instructions

  1. Paint the entire frame with Patina.  When dry, apply a coat of Hologram Extreme Glitter over the entire frame.  Allow to dry. Dip a loose bristle paintbrush into the Inca Gold, tap off the excess and randomly paint around the outer and inner edges of the frame.  Allow to dry. 
  2. To create the flowers, heat a Mod Melt stick in a high-temp hot glue gun.  Squeeze the melt into the large and small daisy molds.  Let cool for 7 minutes..  Remove the melts. Repeat, making as many flowers as desired. 
  3. Paint the melts with Bright Baby Pink.  Once dry, top-coat with a layer of Hologram Extreme Glitter. When dry, glue a gem in the flower center. 
  4. Hot glue the painted flowers to the frame in a random pattern. 
  5. Trim the cross-stitch cloth to fit the center of the frame.  Working on the back, hot glue the cross-stitch cloth to the frame.
