Today I want to show you how I re-made this... Into This....
First you must gather your supplies-- Paint, brushes, a mixing platter (if you are planning on mixing paints), something to cover your work area, a pocket or exacto knife, tape, a tin.
First, pick out what paints you want to use. I chose white and mint to contrast the bright red.
I took viridian hue and combined it with white to get the mint color I wanted.
*note* I used a small wooden chopstick (from an asian fast food store) to mix my paints-- try not to mix with your paintbrush.
Place a generous amount of paint onto your brush and splotch all over your desired area-- do not worry if it is a bit messy; we'll clean this up later.
It should look something like this...
Next, take a couple of cottan swabs and wipe off the excessive paint surrounding your object-- don't go to close to the line. We'll fix it more later ^.^
Next, I put tape on the tin so I could keep a straight line (where the red ends were)
Lastly I took a pocket knife and scraped any of the extra paint of plus all of the writing.
And there you have it! I could have painted the rest of the red white, but I kinda liked the contrast it had ^.^ (you can use some type of metal cloth to smooth it down if yours turned out as scraped as mine)
Have a wonderful day!
