Instructions:

Note: When painting, always apply to top and sides of canvas and allow paint to dry after each application.

  1. Basecoat canvas Bleached Sand.

  4. Use 2" brush and dry brush technique to paint Antique White in vertical and horizontal directions over upper section.
     
  5. Use 2" brush and dry brush technique to paint Calypso Blue in horizontal direction over bottom section; follow curve of line when dragging brush across canvas and over sides. (Note: Brush gently over lettering to prevent seepage under stickers.) Remove stickers from canvas.
     
  6. Use sea sponge to apply light coat of Cocoa over upper section. Repeat with Antique White over some areas of upper section.
     
  7. Use flat brush to apply thick coat of Triple Thick Gloss Glaze to lower section for water surface; allow glaze to dry thoroughly.

  9. Refer to photo for position and glue starfish to canvas.
