- Brush three coats of SC-73 Candy Apple Red to the bird, add a little of SC-15 Tuxedo to the Candy Apple Red to darken for the area around the beak, use the Tuxedo for the eye.
- When dry to the touch, use the sponge on the stick to tap SC-81 Cinnamon Stix to the ST-113 Circulate Stamp, then press to the cardinal for design.
