Before getting started
  • Pick a comfortable spot where you have plenty of space for all the equipment (included in every kit).
  • Get a tub of water and a cloth so you can clean your brushes between using different paint colors.
  • Your paintbrush needs to be dry when putting it in the paint.
Helpful Tips
  • Paint the smallest areas first, then the medium-sized, followed by the largest areas.
  • Paint the whole painting with a single color before moving on to the next one.
  • Let the areas dry completely before painting neighboring sections.
  • Leave no gaps between the different colors.
