Instructions:

1. Trace Outline....leaves and candy cane are in lead metallic, bow and veins of leaves are in gold. Allow to dry for at least 2 hours.

2. Fill in the colors. Put in as much paint as possible, without spilling over. If it does go over, gently roll off excess paint with a Q-tip.

Be sure to touch the paint to the outline (with a fine liner tool or a toothpick).

Shading in the leaves is achieved by putting a small drop of Lime Green in the wet light green paint and blending the paint together once or twice (gently).

In candy cane, do not blend the red and mother-of pearl stripes.

3. Allow to dry for 24 hours, then cut out design with small scissors.

4. Stick on window or any shiny surface with the painted side up. No glue or fixative required.
