    instructions

    for a mod design

    tip!

    the color fields require a few coats of paint to pop!

    1

    start with a black or dark colored cap.

    2

    paint sections in abstract, geometric shapes.

    3

    accent with puff paints in dots and scribbles.

    for a fun splatter effect

    tip!

    hit the paintbrush against the side of the container for a nice sharp *splash* of paint on your cap.

    1

    line a large shallow bin with a plastic bag, and set your cap in it.

    2

    squeeze a few colors of acrylic paint or fabric paint into small cups.

    3

    dip your brush in and shake it over your cap to splatter it.

    for a stripy rainbow

    1

    sketch lightly in pencil to create the arcs for your rainbow.

    2

    paint each with a fun bright color, careful not to smudge at the overlap.

    3

    accent with a black Sharpie once the paint has dried.

    for a fabric collage

    1

    cut or collect scraps of fabric in bright colors.

    2

    apply to your cap with fabric Mod Podge or tacky glue.

    3

    add accents with stitching in a contrast thread or small gems.
