Painting, continued

  • Line each section off with Frog Tape and push the tape tight against the surface.

  • Paint along the direction of the Frog Tape to avoid bleeding.

  • Allow the paint to dry completely before applying a second coat.

  • Paint one color at a time, two coats per color, until pattern is completed.

  • If using border pieces, paint them.

  • Bright colors show up better than pastel colors.

  • Too many colors make the pattern too “busy.”

  • Slight imperfections will not show up from a distance.
