INSTRUCTIONS:

> Dampen the round sponge and wipe down your piece.
> Pour Polar Bear directly onto your platter. Using the  damp sponge spread the paint to cover the entire surface. Paint should be thick  enough that it  takes a minuet to dry.
> Pour an equal amount of Polar  Bear and Sweet Pea onto the  back of the pallet. Mix the two together and apply the paint to the platter in a dabbing motion.  Depending on the size of the piece you might have to repeat the mixing of colors  a few times to complete the second coat.. Your sponge should be full of  paint. Again this coat should take a minuet to  dry.
>Pour a quarter sized dollop  of Polar Bear directly onto the sponge. This time  only dabbing the center of the piece where the bride and groom will be placed.
> Pour Sweet Pea directly onto your sponge and dab the paint  around the rim. This will create a lighter center with a darker rim.
> While platter is drying place the tracing paper on top of the trace and transfer image. Use the pencil trace the image. Cut the image to a manageable size and center on the piece. You can tape the paper on top the piece or enlist a helping set of hands to hold it in place while using the sharpie trace the penciled image onto the piece.
> Remove tracing paper. Refer to the image for  color placement. Make sure to paint three solid coats of paint when  painting the bride and groom.
> Mix a tiny bit of the Fire  Cracker with the same amount Polar Bear for rosy the cheeks. It should be a light pink.. If you make a mistake let the paint dry and carefully use the scraper to scrape off your mistake. Let image dry 5-10  min.
> Use the black writer pen to outline the image.
> With pencil write the  couples names and date above and below the image. Use the black  writer finish the witting.  You can customize this piece and make  it uniquely yours by changing the background color to match the brides wedding colors. Choose your own hair & color skin tones. Add a special message on  the back.
