Instructions

  1. Remove dust with a damp sponge on 04 bisque.
  2. Starting at the top of the tree, brush with SC-93 Honeydew List, about half way add SC-27 Sour Apple to the brush to tint the Honeydew List, add more SC-27 Sour Apple for the bottom of the tree, (always keep Honeydew List in the brush) use CB-604 Soft Fan.  Brush on two coats.
  3. At the top of the tree, use the 1/4" punch paper dots, wet the space for the paper dots, then stick on the paper, continue this process for all the dots.  Use the 3/4" dots for the middle of the tree, and the 1" dots for the bottom section.
  4. Starting at the top of the tree brush with SC-27 Sour Apple with some SC-93 Honeydew List to lighten, in the middle of the tree just use SC-27 Sour Apple, add SC-52 Toadily Green to the brush to deepen the Sour Apple.  Just two coats, water should be added to the brush to brush on smooth coats, use CB-604 Soft Fan.
  5. Let dry, before taking off the paper dots, stamp with the ST-129 Mini Fern.  At the top and middle of the tree, stamp with SC-26 Green Thumb, towards the bottom stamp with SC-8 Just Froggy.  Use a sponge on a stick or a 2" foam roller to apply the color to the stamp.  Remove the paper dots.
  6. Brush SC-8 Just Froggy under the the top and middle branches, fading the color to SC-16 Cotton Tail when the branches start to curl. Two coats, use CB-106 Script Liner.
  7. The lower skirt of the tree, brush with SC-52 Toadily Green, darken to SC-8 Just Froggy, fade to SC-16 Cotton Tail on the tips and edges of the curls. Two coats.
  8. Shade around all the curls with SC-34 Down to Earth mixed with  SC-52 Toadily Green, shade further with SC-8 Just Froggy mixed with a little SC-15 Tuxedo to deepen the shading in the tight section of the curls, and under the arms.  Use CB-106 Script Liner.
  9. Trace or draw on the pointsetta pattern.  Use CB-106 Script Liner to stoke the petals with SC-74 Hot Tamale, add SC-97 Cante-lope to the brush for the middle of the petal, and Hot Tamale to the end.  Two coats, CB-106 Script Liner.  Centers are a mix of SC-34 Down To Earth and SC-97 Cante-lope.  Outline with  SC-15 Tuxedo use CB-110 Liner.
