Technique:

Bottles

  1.  Wash exterior of bottles with soap and water.  Let dry.
  2. Apply light coats of TintIT Mango. Let dry between coats. Each additional coat will darken the color. Can deepen color near the base to create an ombre look.
  3.  Accent with ribbon ties if desired.

Pennants

  1. On each wood pennant, spray the surface closely and heavily with TintIT Chartruese. Immediately wipe the color into the wood grain.
  2. Spraying about 12”-15“ from the pennant apply a light coat of Chartreuse to even the color or if desired, deepen it. Let dry.
  3. Cut book pages into 1.5”-2” wide strips. Fold pages back and forth creating accordion pleats. Fan strips into a medallion and glue edges together.   Blend medallions with a mist of Chartruese.
  4. Decorate the medallions with a button glued in the center and tinsel cording around the perimeter. Glue the medallions to the wood pennants and string together with ribbon.
