|After you've prepared the surface, tape off the sections you do not want to paint. Smooth out all bubbles in the tape.|
|For the first coat of paint, dip the brush in rubbing alcohol and then into the paint. Let dry.|
|For the second coat, refrain from using rubbing alcohol and use just the acrylic paint. Make sure to get an even coat and cover the entire surface.|
|Blow dry after each coat from now on. I painted four coats.|
|Once the last coat of paint is dry, start painting any other areas you would like to color block, following the same steps shown above.|
|Time for the fun part! Once ALL THE PAINT- every last bit of it- has been dry for a while, carefully peel off the tape to reveal your finished product.|
|And it's just so amazing.|
