  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 Snow White. Apply multiple coats until smooth and even. Measure 1 1/4 inches from top and bottom and 1 3/4 inches from the sides to create a rectangle in the center of the lid. Base the outer edges of the lid and the remaining box with Sand. Apply a thin coat of matte varnish to the entire box. This will protect the work you have already done plus allow for easy clean-up for the next step.
  1. Place the mouse 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.
  1. Using a bubble palette, place about a dime size drop of Orchid and Sand in individual bubbles. Mix one part paint with appx three parts water mixed with Easy Float. Completely mix the paint until it becomes transparent. Using a flat shader and/or #3 round brush to wash in Orchid to the tea pot, bunny, and tea bag label. The Sand is washed onto the box, tea bags, and mice. The sugar cubes remain white. Once the bunny is dry wash over him with a thinned wash of Neutral Grey.
  1. Shade each color with full strength paint using a flat brush, with the exception that the bunny is shaded with Neutral Grey. Apply a second shade to the yellow areas with Sand + Traditional Raw Sienna (1:1), and Wild Orchid to the orchid areas.
  1. Float a transparent shade of Dioxazine Purple to the darkest areas of the tea pot and Traditional Raw Sienna to the yellow areas. The ground is shaded with a float of Neutral Grey and the sugar cubes are shaded with Blue Haze Light.
  1. Cover the center area with a piece of paper, then stamp the floral pattern to the rest f the box using the Floral Tapestry with Sand + Traditional Raw Sienna (1:1).
  1. Allow to cure 24 hours and then coat with matte varnish.
