Instructions:

  1. Prepare the surface with sealer, sand, then wipe with dampened cheese cloth. Note, it is important that there are not any areas with high wood grain. Sand until smooth. Basecoat entire surface with White Wash. Apply multiple coats until smooth and even. Apply 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 stamp referring to the photo. Place stamp onto acrylic handle. Dampen sponge and remove as much water as possible. Load with Lamp Black. 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. Add small circles to the handle and the egg using a circle template and outlining with a permanent, waterproof marker.
  3. Mix about a dime size drop of Cadmium Yellow with appx three parts water mixed with Easy Float. Completely mix the paint until it becomes transparent. Using a flat shader brush or #3 round to wash in the chick. The remaining colors are based in with full strength paint. The front and back section and lavender dots are Purple Cow + White Wash (1:1), sides and blue dots are Bahama Blue + White Wash (1:1), handles are based Cadmium Yellow + White Wash (1:1), and pink dots are Bubblegum Pink + White Wash (1:1). Do not base the inside of the treat box if it will touch unwrapped food, simply line it shredded paper.
  4. Allow to cure 24 hours and then coat the outside areas with matte varnish.
