Instructions

  • I started by lining up seven paint sticks. Some of them were a little warped, but gently bending them with my hands helped bring them back to shape. I laid out the starfish to help me decide which ones to use.
  • I painted the sticks, alternating colors as I went. The end result was 2 green, 2 blue and 3 white. After they had dried, I dry brushed white over the blue and green sticks. I used a sponge applicator to paint the starfish white, and once they were dry I added a layer of Oyster Beige.
  • Sanding all the edges and corners came next. I also sanded the face of the sticks and the starfish.
  • I hot glued the sticks together, one by one, gluing from the backside so that the glue wouldn't show.
  • Next, I tied a hanger out of twine and glued that to the back, then turned the whole thing over and glued the starfish in place.
