  3. Paint Cool2Cast shapes. On the cameo piece, I like to use a fine line brush to paint along the detail line and then paint the outside with the shader brush.

  4. My tile art is built on a wood plaque. For the base of this project, I painted my plaque black so that it gives the appearance of black grout. Set aside to dry.
