  • 4
    Working in one area at a time, trace template as shown, using Pink for the slippers and then Orange, Blue, Green and Yellow as shown or as desired. Then apply a very small amount of water with paintbrush to blend the color, being very careful not to apply water anywhere that needs to remain White.
  • 5
    Continue the technique until the entire design is completed, being careful not to oversaturate with water to deter bleeding of the markers.
  • 6
    Let dry, or use a hair dryer to speed up the drying process.
  • 7
    Draw over the design in areas that need sharper lines, if desired. Let dry. Remove freezer paper and template. Position mirrored image of pattern several inches apart from the first slipper and repeat steps 2 through 7 to create another slipper.
