    • DMP01 - Bright White

  1. Use large flat brush and Real Red to paint jar lid.
     
  2. Use shader brush and Bright Gold to paint stripe across center of lid.
     
  3. Use shader brush and True Green to paint stripe above and below gold stripe.
     
  4. Use #6 flat brush and Bright White to paint dashed line between Bright Gold and True Green stripes.

  8. Finish item as desired to create ornament, gift tag, pin, or magnet:
     
  9. Pin: attach self-adhesive pin back to upper center at back of completed lid;
     
  10. Magnet: attach 1" piece of self-adhesive magnetic strip to back center of completed lid;
    Ornament or gift tag: form loop from 10" length of 3/8" wide ribbon and glue between ribbon ends, aligning edges; glue ends to upper center back of lid.
