Designer: Cassidy Chester



  1. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.  
  2. Paint the bottom row of shapes with 3 coats of the following colors in this order: SC-74 Hot Tamale, SC-75 Orange-A-Peel, SC-23 Jack O’Lantern, SC-6 Sunkissed, SC-27 Sour Apple, SC-9 Jaded, SC-11 Blue Yonder, SC-53 Purple Haze, SC-13 Grapel, and SC-3 Wine About It. Let dry.  
  3. For the top row of shapes, you will combine colors. Each shape on top is equal parts the colors directly before and after it (in a zig zag pattern from bottom to top,) with an added half amount of SC-16 Cotton Tail. Paint the top row with three coats of the combination colors. Let dry.  
  4. For example: The shape on top between Sunkissed and Sour Apple on the bottom is a mixture of the two + Cotton Tail. It would be: 1/3 Sunkissed, 1/3 Sour Apple, 1/3 Cotton Tail.
