DIY Textured Art Kit Instructions:

1. PREP

Find a surface to lay out all the materials to start creating your masterpieces. Then, put those gloves on to begin creating!

P.S. - Things may get a little messy but nothing water and soap can't fix!

2. APPLYING PLASTER

Use the large flat putty knife to thoroughly mix the plaster until it is a creamy, smooth texture. Once mixed, use any of the putty knives to apply the plaster all over the surface of your canvases as evenly as possible - I recommend it be about 1/4" thick. Note, the thicker you apply the plaster, the more likely cracks will occur while drying. If you do experience cracking in your art, use a paint brush to apply more plaster to fill in any cracks.

Optional: Adding a teaspoon of water while mixing your plaster will help give you a a creamier, smooth texture.

3. DESIGNING

This is where you get to be creative! Use the texture comb or any palette knife to create any design you would like. Arches, squiggles, waves, flower petals, etc.

P.S - if you mess up, use the putty knife to smooth the plaster out and start over!

4. DRYING

Once you've mastered your design, let your plaster completely harden for before painting! Drying time will vary on the thickness of your plaster, temperature, and humidity.

5. PAINTING

Congratulations - you've made it to the fun part! Use any of the 6 color pots to bring your art to life. Get even more creative and mix your own colors with the paint tray provided.
