Project Instructions

Paint the tissue box blue. Let dry.

Pour a small puddle of white paint onto your palette then add a little water. Use the soft paintbrush to paint over the blue with watery white paint. This is a “wash.” Let dry.

Using a clean, dry brush, dip the brush into a normal consistency of white paint. Wipe the paint off the brush onto a paper towel, then “dry brush” white over the appliqués, picking up extra paint as needed from the paper towel.

Let paint dry, then seal to protect the painted surface.


Dry brush any item with white to create a perfect "shabby chic" look.
