    1. Remove the product label from the frame. Use tracing and transfer papers and a pencil to trace and transfer the British flag pattern to the frame.
    2. Use the #10 flat brush dipped in Country Red for the center stripes; Bleached Sand for stripes around the Country Red stripes; and Primary Blue for the rest.
    3. Use a #2 round brush dipped in Shimmering Silver to outline the stripes. Use the handle end of the brush to add dabs on the four larger Country Red stripes.
    4. Trace and transfer "London" to the bottom right corner of the frame.
    5. Fill in the letters using the #2 round brush and Shimmering Silver; outline in Lamp Black.
    6. Trace and transfer the bus and phone patterns onto the red Fun Foam and Big Ben to the black Fun Foam.
    7. On the bus and telephone, outline the details using a #2 round brush dipped in Lamp Black. Outline the details on the clock with Shimmering Silver on the #2 round brush. (Use water to add fluidity.)
    8. Fill all shapes on the bus and telephone sign in with Snow White and the #2 round brush. Add Shimmering Silver for highlights. Go back over any Lamp Black outlines as needed and paint in the word "Telephone" on the Snow White sign.
    9. Use scissors to cut out the shapes. Use hot glue gun to adhere shapes to the frame.
