Cover the work surface with a dust sheet or newspaper. Remove the glass from the frame. Make up the plaster by following the packet instructions. Spread the plaster onto the frame with the aid of the spatula. Use a notched spatula to create a pattern on the surface and leave to dry.
Use a base layer of edding Universal Primer as a key for the paint. Ensure that you use a slow, steady movement whilst applying the spray (horizontal and vertical strokes) and hold the can at a distance of approx. 25 cm. Once dry, first spray on the dark shade from the edding Permanent Spray range.
Again, leave the paint to dry thoroughly before spraying on the lighter colour. Finally, when everything is completely dry, take the copper-coloured edding gloss paint marker and add some colourful highlights to the texture.
