  • 1/4" Angular #G16014
  • 1/4" Filbert #G93014

  • Sand and seal wood piece.

Painting Instructions:
  • Using the 1/4" Angular, basecoat cat with Burnt Sienna.
  • Lightly transfer the pattern.
  • Sideload the Angular brush with Burnt Umber and shade under the jaw, mouth, nose, ear, leg separations, under the belly, top of the paws and the base of the tail.
  • With Soft Black and the Script Liner, paint the nose and outline the eye.
  • Paint the fur using the Filbert Comb. Thin each paint colour with water so it flows easily from the bristles. Always start with the darketst colours, working up to the lightest: Raw Sienna, Golden Straw and Sand.
  • Dot Burnt Umber "freckles" on the muzzle, then use the Script Liner with Sand to paint the whiskers and highlight the dot in the eye.

  • Varnish with two coats of varnish. Let dry.
