    Allow to dry between painting steps. Rinse brush completely between color changes.

    1. Using the 1/2” round brush and horizontal brushstrokes, start painting the frame with Baby Blue on top, gradually adding Snow White all the way to the bottom.
    2. Trace and transfer the girl pattern onto the front corner of the frame.
    3. For the girl’s face, trace around the 2” wooden circle in pencil first and then paint it in with Flesh Tone with the #3 round brush.
    4. With the same brush, paint an upside down “U” shape in Baby Blue for the girl’s dress.
    5. Paint two little circles in Bubblegum Pink for the girl’s cheeks with the #3 round brush.
    6. Paint the girl’s hair in Baby Blue with free-flowing, wavy strokes using the #3 round brush. Let the frame dry.
    7. Paint the 2” wood circle with two coats of Bright Yellow using the 1/2" round brush and then add a swirl of Snow White. Let dry.
    8. Glue the Bright Yellow circle to the top right of the frame window with wood glue.
    9. Paint the sunrays in Bright Yellow with free-flowing strokes of the #3 round brush.
    10. With a black marker, draw the girl’s arms, eye, and mouth. Draw dotted lines around outer and inner perimeter, around the sun, and on the tips of the sunrays.
