  1. Prepare the frame with sealer, sand, then wipe with dampened cheese cloth. Basecoat the red areas of the frame with Cherry Red and the black areas with Lamp Black. Coat the background with a coat of matte varnish. This will protect the work you have already done plus allow for easy clean-up for the next step.
  2. Determine placement of stamps on mirror referring to the photo. Dampen a cosmetic sponge and remove as much water as possible. Place the stamp on the large acrylic handle. Load the sponge with Lamp Black. Apply the paint to the stamp and apply to frame. Repeat the same process in all four corners of the frame. Use a damped paint brush to remove unwanted paint for black areas. When using paint on stamps it is important that you do not overload the image. Pour a puddle of paint out on the palette. Pounce the sponge into the paint and then on a clean area of the palette. When you look at the bottom of the sponge it should be covered by paint but you should still be able to see the texture of the sponge. Now quickly pounce the loaded sponge over the entire image and stamp it on the surface. If you don’t like what you have stamped simply wipe it off with a wet wipe! Since you already have a coat of varnish on the surface, it will clean up easily. Immediately wash the stamp with soap and water. If any has dried use an old tooth brush to clean.
  3. Shade the outside the flower lines and around the center by floating Lamp Black.  Keep these floats very soft by blending it out on the palette paper. Float the highlights to the flowers with Glorious Gold on the inside of the lines. Fill in the circles and add centers with Glorious Gold using a #3 round brush.
  4. Allow to cure for 24 hours. Apply multiple coats of matte varnish to protect the frame.
