  4. Use the Soft Fan to apply 2-3 coats of CG-963 Lemon Lime to the ruffled section of the shell.
  5. Use the Script Liner and Soft Fan to apply three coats of SC-77 Glo-worm to the snail’s body.
  6. Use the Liner to apply two coats of SC-11 Blue Yonder, to the snail’s eyes and shade with SC-12 Moody Blue. Shade the snail’s body with thinned Moody Blue. Thin SC-15 Tuxedo with water and apply onto and inside the mouth.
  7. Use the Script Liner to apply one coat of SC-77 Glo Worm over the Seawind section of the shell. Use the Script Liner to outline the shell’s spirals with SC-12 Moody Blue, then with thin lines of SC-15 Tuxedo.
  8. Detail the mouth and edge of ruffle with SC-15 Tuxedo.
