Project Instructions

Step: 1

Place pattern under Leading Blank.


Step: 2

Trace pattern lines with Liquid Lead, using bottle tip to apply. Let dry.


Step: 3

For the brown turtle, fill in legs and head with Cameo Ivory. Add brown dots using bottle tip of Cocoa Brown. Carefully swirl Cameo Ivory into each section of the shell, leaving some blank areas. Carefully swirl Cocoa Brown in spaces between Cameo Ivory. Use the stirring tool to swirl the brown and ivory together slightly. Let dry overnight.


Step: 4

For the green turtle, apply Celadon Green to the base of each leg and to the sides of the head. Apply Fresh Lime to the outer part of each leg and to the center of the head. Use the stirring tool to blend the two colors of green slightly, stroking lengthwise for the legs. Let dry overnight.


Step: 5

Carefully peel turtles up from the Leading Blank and press onto any clean (dry) glass surface such as fish tank, window, bathroom mirror or outside of shower door!


Tips
