Material: 1 Lampshade to decorate, 1 Piece of paper, 1 Fade out marker (ref DPA8053), 1 Flat brush no4 (ref 951160), 1 Round brush no8 (ref 951160), 2 Clothespins, Bright Yellow (ref 295301) Turquoise (ref 295311), Powder Pink (ref 295305), Pearl Green (ref 202094), Pearl Blue (ref 202095), Pearl Pink (ref 202096), Pearl Gold (ref 202097)

Step 1

Step 4: Trace the flamingos with the Setacolor Suede Effect colours. Allow to dry for approximately 1 hour.

Step 5
