STEP ONE

Mix your coloured paint with white to create a range of pastel colours.

Progressively add more white to the colour to make the paint lighter.

Select a colour and paint one bead completely.

STEP TWO

Use Washi Tape to ‘mask’ some beads before painting.

‘Masking’ the beads means that the area of the wood covered by the tape will be protected from paint.

Allow all of your beads to dry completely.

Apply a second coat of paint to all the beads if required.  Allow to dry.

Peel off the tape to reveal the unpainted parts of your beads – looks fantastic!!
