  2. Use pencil and transfer paper to transfer pattern to both sides of heart, or sketch own design. Use dimensional paint to outline designs. Outline heart edges with series of tiny dots, painted very close together. Note: Greater control and thinner lines can be obtained by squeezing paint into plastic squeeze bottle, then using narrow metal tip to draw. Let dry.
