You will Need

First Edition Deco Mache Brushes

DecoArt Chalk paint - Refreshing, Smitten

Dovecraft Perma Fix tape


How to Make

1.  Mask the area off that you wish to paint on your lampshade, using red line tape.  The red tape will enable you to make borders and will help you keep the DecoArt paint within your designated area.

2.  Make sure the tape is secure to avoid the paint bleeding underneath it.

3.  Make sure your work surface is protected  then Paint the sections using the Deco Art paint, we have used fresh spring colours but you can change it to suit your décor.

TIP – Take your time, and don’t use too much paint at once as it might bleed.

4.  Leave to dry and remove the tape to reveal your design.
