How to Paint Your Angels

painting angelYour Angels must be completely dried before you begin painting and sealing them.
To paint your Angels use acrylic paints, letting it soak into the dough or food coloring.
You can give your pieces a white coat before painting on color.
Be sure and seal your Angels with varnish, here is a link to the varnish that I use to create shine and seal out moisture. http://goo.gl/Oymlmf
Apply at least 3 coats to the front and back of your Angel to seal out all moisture.
