1Remove the product label from the candlesticks before beginning project. Refer to project photo for design placement.
2With a pencil, referring to the photo, mark the size and placement of stripes, windows, rocks, and shoreline. (You don't need to draw grass - after you paint water, you will paint grass over it from bottom.)
3Alternate Cherry Red and Snow White OR Leaf Green and Snow White, to stripe lighthouse body. Stripe the candle cups with Snow White and Ebony Black (see photo for placement). Let dry.
4When painting rocks, mix a little Ebony Black and Snow White to make grey. Add Ebony Black for shadows and add Snow White for highlights.
5For water, add Snow White to True Blue. Add True Blue for shadows and add Snow White for highlights.
6Use Ebony Black to paint on windows and doors. To outline them, use black Sharpie marker. (It might be too difficult to use brush.) Let dry. You may use sealer to finish the project.
