Product Note
Americana Acrylics are artist-quality, water-based, non-toxic paints. They are intermixable and suitable for almost any surface. They are creamy to facilitate smooth and easy brush strokes, and highly pigmented for richer color and one-stroke coverage. The wide range of colors makes color coordination easy: It reduces the waste of mixing to get the perfect hue.

 

  1. Use wash brush to paint basket sides and bottom Moon Yellow, basket border Salem Blue, handle and sign Country Blue. Paint Woodsie pieces Raw Sienna, 1 egg Coral Rose, 1 egg Salem Blue and remaining egg Moon Yellow. Let dry.
     
  2. Use 4 brush to paint border on sign Moon Yellow. When dry, paint checkers on sign with Coral Rose.
     
  3. Use 4 brush and liner brush to add details on eggs as desired or refer to photo. Use brush handle to dot Moon Yellow on basket handle and Salem Blue on sign.
     
  4. Use marker to outline checks, and draw bunny face on Woodsie circle.
     
  5. Use liner brush to paint bunny nose Coral Rose.
     
  6. Use liner to paint child's name in block letters with Light Buttermilk. Dot letters with handle tip of brush.
