    2. Instruction #1
    3. Use a 2" flat brush to basecoat the tray Delicate. Rinse brush.
    4. Position the painter's tape into the shape or design you want. (You may want to measure with a ruler and pencil first or just eyeball it.)
    5. Instruction #3
    6. Use a 1" flat brush to paint the design in Everlasting. Repeat as needed. Rinse brush and remove the painter's tape. Let completely dry.
