Project Instructions

Use pattern and pencil to trace owl body onto contact paper. Cut out to create a stencil. Save both pieces.

Place negative part of the stencil on shirt, blocking out the owl’s body.

Squeeze out Tulip® Soft® paint onto palette and apply to child’s index finger with a craft sponge.

Place child’s finger next to the owl’s eyes and gently press down (refer to photo). Remove and repeat for desired feathers. Repeat for each side. Let dry.

Refer to photo for color placement, apply Soft® paint to child’s fingertips to create owl’s feet and ears by painting child’s finger and applying paint around owl. Let dry.

Remove stencil negative and replace with stencil. Fill in body and eyes with Soft® paint using a paintbrush. Let dry.

Using a Q-tip, dip into Soft® paint and add dots around owl. While paint is wet, sprinkle glitter on top. Let dry. Shake off excess.

Use Slick Black Tulip® dimensional paint to paint owl’s pupils as well as outline eyes and body feathers.


When applying Tulip® Soft® paint to fingers, use a generous amount and continue to dab with sponge until just before application. If paint dries before application, it will not result in a clean application.
