    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    4. Instruction #2
    5. Paint a first layer of Lipstick around the bottom half of the ornament. (Be sure not to go in a completely level line; use tape to mask off the layer, if needed.) You could also dip the ornament to create this effect more easily. Let dry. Once the paint has dried, repeat with Cotton Ball. Repeat the striping as many times as desired to achieve the desired effect.
