Otherwise, saddle up…I am going to take you on a painting ride…


Graphite Paper, Sandpaper, Gesso (Sealer), Tack Cloth, Mod Podge Varnish either Gloss or Matte, and a Ball Point Pen or Stylus
PAINT:  White, Red
BRUSHES:  ¼ Flat a brush

TIME DURATION:  Several Hours (Due to paint drying time)
1 Wood Cutout, 1 Candle, Toothpicks, Painting Instructions, Pattern
Once you have received your painting packet, the first thing you are going to do is SAND your wood cutouts.
You can sand your wood cutout with an electric palm sander or with just some sandpaper that you probably have lying around.  I LOVE my Makita palm sander with the attached dust bag.  It just makes the sanding job easier and quicker.
Once the wood cutouts are sanded smooth. Use a TACK CLOTH to get all of the dust off of your wood pieces.

Now it is time to seal our wood cutouts. When I am going to paint something, I like to seal my wood with GESSO.  It is a think white sealer that you just brush on and let dry completely.

Once your GESSO is completely dry SAND then use the TACK CLOTH again to get all of the white dust particles off. YOUR wood cutouts should feel smooth to the touch.  If not, sand some more, then TACK again.

Now, we need to get ready to PAINT our base coats.  Paint the FRONT, BACK, and SIDES of your heart RED.  You will need TWO Coats of Paint…Let dry completely between coats.

Place your GRAPHITE PAPER on top of your wood cutout, put your pattern on top of the graphite paper, and with a STYLUS or ballpoint pen, trace your I LOVE YOU wording.   You can also FREEHAND this.  Using your WHITE Sharpie, Go over your Wording.  Now, squirt some WHITE paint on a piece of wax paper.  Dip your toothpick into the paint and place your DIP DOTS on your wording. Use the same technique to place your dots around your heart.

Let this dry overnight.  Once this is completely dry, then you can add TWO coats of varnish.  I like to use Mod Podge varnish.  You can choose GLOSS or MATTE…whether you like it shiny or not…

Once your sealer/varnish is dry, just add your candle…


YOU did it!!!

G-O  YOU!!!
