Project Instructions

Base coat letters with Wedding Cake. Allow to dry.

Tape off 5½" from the top of each letter. Transfer the leaf pattern (download button below) to the top half of each letter, repeating the pattern as needed. Using a #1 round brush and a #6 flat brush, paint leaves as follows: one M with Hailstorm, O with Marmalade and the second M with Granny Smith. Allow to dry. Remove tape and fill in the bottom portion of the letters using the same colors as the leaves.

Transfer the flower pattern to the M with Hailstorm leaves. Paint the flower in Marmalade. Allow to dry and then add a large Granny Smith center. When dry, add the Limeade glitter paint. Once the glitter paint dries, add a Wedding Cake circle and then add four small Hailstorm dots by using the end of the paintbrush. Add Wedding Cake dots to the flower.

Tips

Be sure to paint the sides of the letters with Wedding Cake for a professional finish.
