Skill Level: Beginner – Intermediate
Time to make: 2-3 hours
1. Paint the advent calendar with the red chalky paint. Make sure that you leave the doors open as the paint dries. You will need to do a couple of coats and paint inside and out. 2. Paint the roof and the door handles white. You may need to do several coats. 3. Use a white pencil to draw your designs on to your calendar. 4. Using a small brush, paint the more inaccessible parts of the calendar first. You may need to do several layers. 5. Using a white outliner tube, draw the numbers onto the doors. 6. Varnish the advent calendar with Mod Podge. Don’t worry if it looks milky when it is wet – it dries clear. 7. Add silver detail using a Cerne outliner.
