Insert Fashion Form into shirt to prevent paint seepage. Use permanent felt pen to trace over pattern. Flip over pattern – the lines should show through – then use chalk to lightly trace over lines.
Position pattern on shirt, hold in place with hand then run a finger over lines transferring chalk to fabric. Remove pattern.
Test flow of True Red 3D Fashion Paint on paper towel, using an even pressure on bottle for a smooth line. Outline far-left tree and then fill in with an even application of paint. Immediately pour Apple Red Jewel Glitter over wet paint. Set aside for about 10 minutes to let paint slightly dry. Place scratch paper on work surface then carefully pour excess glitter from shirt onto scratch paper. Tap Fashion Form to remove as much as possible. Not all will come off.
