Fewer strokes will give you a better, more even coverage. STEP 1 STEP 2 STEP 3 STEP 4 P R E PA R AT IO N Sand the surfaces with 400-grit sandpaper, and then remove any dust. Basecoat the face of each kitten with Flesh Tan. Te basecoats for the other details depend on the season with which the tassel corresponds. Te basecoats for the kittens' bodies are as follows: SPRING: Eggshell SUMMER: Grey Sky FALL: Flesh Tan WINTER: Country Red HATS: Paint the trim border and the ball of the spring and summer hats with Grey Sky, and those of the fall and win- ter hats with Quaker Grey. Te remainder of the hat on the spring tassel is Eggshell, the remainder of the hats on summer and fall are Flesh Tone, and that for the winter tassel is Country Red. Allow all paint to dry completely, and then transfer the details onto the surfaces. SDP_ebook_2014.indd 39 3/24/14 3:16 PM
