Carefully lift photo paper up from the corner to reveal the MAGIC of the splash technique!  The water-based dual brush pen ink dries instantly in the emulsion side of the glossy photo paper and creates a beautiful and vivid watercolor effect. Repeat these steps twice to create three banners. Clean the Blending Palette in between prints with a baby wipe and/or paper towel.

STEP THREE

Protect the work surface with a piece of paper, then spread an even coat of MONO Multi Liquid Glue over the chipboard letters. Sprinkle silver glitter onto the letters, set them aside to dry and then use the piece of paper to return the extra glitter to its original container.
