He’s been painted with acrylics using a dry brushing technique…

It’s a very simple but effective method to colour Pappart!

1. Place the triangle frame on the textured side of the white paper and trace around the inner and outer frame with the pencil.

Use each star punch to punch one star out of the rest of the paper. These stars will serve as a template. Use the templates to draw any number of stars within the inner triangle, always some distance from each other and the inner frame.

Cut out the frame along the outer line and cut out the stars as well.

2. Prime the complete triangle frame with white acrylic paint and leave to dry. Then apply the Deko-Snow paste with a spatula to the outside edges of the frame. Leave to dry.

3. Stick double-sided tape around the edges of the paper triangle on the textured side. Stick the paper triangle to the Starshine sheet. Cut out the Starshine following the the edges of the paper triangle. Use double-sided tape around the edges of the Starshine triangle to stick it to the triangle frame. Glue the fairy lights inside the back of the triangle frame using the hot glue gun.
