1. Lightly wipe ware with a damp sponge to prepare surface for painting.
2. First, paint 3 Delta Greek letters with 3 coats of Light Butternut.
2. On one side of the heart, use 'Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Âº" painter's to create a striped pattern, covering the entire surface. Paint the unmasked stripes with 3 coats of Light Nautical, making sure not to paint the side edges of the heart. Let dry. Once dry, remove the painter's tape. Clean any jagged edges of the stripes using the tapered end of a paintbrush.
3. Paint the entire back surface of the heart postcard stand with 3 coats of Light Nautical. Let dry.
4. On the striped surface of the heart, use the template given and a pencil to sketch a small anchor in the top center of the heart. Trace and fill in the anchor with a detail brush and Dark Nautical.
5. Use any French Dimensions to attach the 3 Delta Greek letters to the striped surface of the heart, in one single row, with a small distance in between each letter. Press down firmly to ensure they are attached to the surface well.
6. Wipe a damp, clean sponge across the side edges of the heart to clean off any paint that may have spread to its surface. Repeatedly clean the sponge as you do this; if you don't, the dirty sponge may spread paint further onto the side edges. Let the piece dry completely. .
