Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include drying time for neither the paint nor the Mod Podge.
  • 2
    Basecoat entire square plaques Licorice using 3/4 inch flat brush. Allow to dry. Sand smooth rough areas using fine grit sandpaper.
  • 3
    Paint a rough square of Cayman Blue on one plaque and Green on the other. Note: the colored squares against Licorice are painted not specific or edge exact; allow the color to roughly blend or fade to the Licorice background.
  • 4
    Accent the Licorice border with tiny Wicker White polka dots randomly painted around the edge of the color square.
  • 5
    Paint a wiggle hyphenated line on the colored square using thinned Licorice and the liner brush. Allow to dry.
  • 6
    Basecoat each of the six small wood circle Licorice. Allow to dry and paint Wicker White letters “Cow” or “Pig” on each circle.
  • 7
    Cut the cow shape from the Tiramisu cardstock and a pig shape from the Piglet cardstock. Draw eyes and nose for each animal with Licorice and liner brush. Also cut a “C” and a “P” from same cardstock.
  • 8
    Brush a coat of Matte Mod Podge to the backside of the each of the cut cardstock and glue to the prepared square plaques. Smooth any air bubbles or wrinkles using the Mod Podge squeegee. Allow to dry.
  • 9
    Paint Licorice ears and feet on the animals. Accent the ears with tiny Wicker White polka dots. Paint “is for” next to each decoupaged letter using thinned Licorice and the liner brush. Allow to dry.
  • 10
    Use glue to attach each oval cutout in a vertical line on the right side of each plaque. Allow glue to dry.
  • 11
    Brush one to two coats of Mod Podge over the entire project and allow to dry.
  • 12
    To hang wall art, add eye screws to the top and bottom of one plaque and only the top on the second plaque. Tie ribbon in a bow on the plaques using the screws as "holding points".
