  2. Print 2 copies of the pattern. Cut both ornament patterns out, cutting on the outside edge of the line.
  3. Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 1 coat of FN-001 White to the center area of the tree where the ornament pattern will go. Allow to dry.
  4. Apply 1 of each ornament to the tree on the FN-001 White area using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan and water. After placing the ornament on the tree, press with a paper towel to make sure the paper is stuck to the tree.
  5. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of FN-053 Mint to the tree except not on the branches that are flipped up.
  6. After the 3 coats of the FN-053 Mint have been applied, remove the paper pattern. Allow to dry.
  7. Using the second set of ornament patterns, trace on the ornament patterns and the holly boughs using the AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper, Also if you are painting the Merry Christmas on the other side you can trace this now.
