    Download and print project template. If larger image is desired, you may need to break it into different sections to get it large enough image. Use transfer paper to trace pattern onto canvas, using several sheets, if needed. You may also choose to, if you are comfortable doing so, freehand pattern on canvas lightly with pencil.

    Paint trunk and branches first using Lamp (Ebony) Black and liner brush. Fill thick areas in using Lamp (Ebony) Black and angle brush. Paint small shamrocks onto thin branches first using Leaf Green. (Create shamrocks by connecting three heart shapes at their points, with their sides touching each other. This leaves open area at bottom for stem.) Add large Leaf Green shamrocks around outside of tree. (For larger shamrocks, use round or liner brush.) Use Hauser Light Green to paint more large shamrocks around outside of tree. Fill in rest of shamrocks in different sizes and colors using Marigold, Primary Yellow, and Jack-O’-Lantern Orange.
