TOUCH OF GOLD – PREPERATION INSTRUCTIONS
The design surface should be at least 6” x 8”. A flat panel, box or plate (10” diameter) will work well. There will be 2 patterns of the rose; the original for the 6” X 8” surface and a larger one.
Sand the item, seal and base coat; using Black, Black Green, or for a mix of Napa Red + Black (about 1.5 part red to 1 part black). If you decide to use the red base, adjust the color with a little more red if you want the red to show. But, remember to keep the base color dark.
Sand lightly and apply a second coating of base color.
Be sure to bring your base color with you for any touch-up during the painting.
