Instructions for Personalized Phone Covers

(Tip: To erase a line, immediately use damp cotton swab to carefully wipe off while still wet OR let completely dry and paint over it.)

 

For "Lavender Olives":
1. Use copy paper to practice drawing design as follows. Use Painters® Mixed Berry Marker to draw eight randomly-spaced 1/2" circles. In alternating spaces similarly draw Ocean (Blue) circles, then Citron (Green) circles and last, Lavender circles including drawing half-circles along edges. Let dry. With Violet Painters®, draw small off-centered dots in Lavender circles.

 

2. On purple phone cover, draw design in order as practiced. Let dry overnight to completely set. In well-ventilated, newspaper-covered area, spray with two light coats spray finish. Let completely set.

 

For "Flower Blossoms":
1. Use copy paper to practice drawing design as follows: Write name in lower right corner with Spa Blue Painters® Marker.

 

2. Referring to photo and starting at bottom, use Mint Painters® Marker to draw 1 1/2" long curvy stem. Use Bubblegum Painters® to draw flower with five irregular petals. Add second stem and flower. Then, add third stem and flower. Add leaves to stems. Add accent flower and stem to bottom left. Use Coral Painters® to draw small bursts for flower centers.

 

3. On coral phone cover, draw design in order as practiced. Let dry overnight to completely set. In well-ventilated, newspaper-covered area, spray with two light coats spray finish. Let completely set.

 

 


For "Nervous Zebra":
1. Use copy paper to practice drawing design as follows: Use Black Painters® Marker to write name in upper right corner. For a ragged effect, very lightly touch marker to surface and move quickly to create ragged edges to letters.

 

2. For zebra stripe design, from left side draw an irregular spiked line. Then come in from right side and draw spiked line. Alternate back and forth to draw lines, copying photo or by creating your own design.

 

3. On white phone cover, draw design as practiced. Let dry overnight to completely set. In well-ventilated, newspaper-covered area, spray with two light coats spray finish. Let completely set.
