Project Details

  • Time:3 hours

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Let the paint dry between steps. Project time does not include this drying time.
  • 2
    Punch out about a half dozen stars on contact paper. Place these stars on the canvas. Lightly draw the moon in pencil. (A small plate works great). Using a #8 round brush, paint the perimeter of the moon. Using a small sea sponge, dab Chartreuse around the moon and over the stars. Carefully peel off the stars.
  • 3
    Continue dabbing Chartreuse on the canvas, avoiding the inside of the moon and stars.
  • 4
    Using a #8 round brush, paint a circle around the stars and outline the moon in Blue Bird. Using a small sea sponge, dab Blue Bird in the space between the stars. Using a small sea sponge, dab on Cobalt, blending out toward the edges of the canvas.
  • 5
    Continue dabbing both Blue Bird and True Blue to blend. Using a #10 flat brush, paint the perimeter in True Blue. Loosely paint the word "Wish" using a #8 round brush with two coats of Cotton Ball.
  • 6
    Carefully adhere low-heat light light bulbs on a wire to the back of the canvas to create the glow effect. Plug the lights in.
