Champagne Extra Fine Glitter
Champagne Martha Stewart Multi-Surface Metallic Craft Paints
Fuchsia Apple Barrel Acrylic Paint

Mod Podge

Things to do:
1. Paint the bottom third of the unfinished wooden letter L with the Champagne Martha Stewart Paint.

2. Approximately a third of the way up, also paint the unfinished letters V and E with the Champagne paint. Set aside to dry.

3. Once the champagne paint is dry, paint the middle third of each letter with the fuchsia Apple Barrel acrylic paint. Set letters aside to dry.

4. Once the fuschia paint is dry, paint the top third of the unfinished wooden letters with the cameo pink Apple Barrel acrylic paint. Set letter aside to dry.

5. Once letters are dry, cover the cameo pink paint portion of the letter L with Mod Podge.

6. Over a paper lined container, generously pour the Blush Pink Extra Fine Glitter of the Mod Podge. Shake off excess glitter. Set aside to dry.
7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 with other two letters.

8. Once the blush pink glitter is dry, brush a layer of Mod Podge onto the fuschia pink portion of the letter L. I added little smudges above the straight line to mix the glitter colors slightly.

9. Over a paper lined container, generously pour the Bubble Gum Pink Extra Fine Glitter of the Mod Podge. Shake off excess glitter. Set aside to dry.
10. Repeat steps 8 and 9 with other two letters.

11. Once the bubble pink pink glitter is dry, brush a layer of Mod Podge onto the champagne paint portion of the letter L. I added little smudges above the straight line to mix the glitter colors slightly again.

12. Over a paper lined container, generously pour the Champagne Extra Fine Glitter of the Mod Podge. Shake off excess glitter. Set aside to dry.

13. Repeat steps 11 and 12 with other two letters.
14. Once all letters are dry, in a well ventilated area, spray the letters with the Krylon Glitter Blast Clear Sealer Spray. This will help the glitter from falling off.
