Instructions in 7 steps

Besides the articles listed below, you also need: Hot glue, buttons cells 

And this is how it works:


Step 1

Take the continents carefully out of the wooden world map.

Step 2

Dip the damp paint pad firstly into the Chalky Finish dark brown cream-wax and wipe it over the entire wooden surface.

Step 3

Dip the used sponge into the Chalky Finish anthracite paint and wipe it irregularly in the damp cream-wax. Use little paint and add always a little water to the sponge in order to avoid thick paint application.

Step 4

Paint the rear side of the wooden pad with the Extreme Sheen gold paint, and wipe its edges with the dark brown cream-wax. Let it dry well out.

Step 5

Affix firmly the fairy lights at the rear side of the world map along the continents by means of the scotch tape.

Step 6

Power the fairy lights with two button cells and fix it then at the edge, so that you can easily switch it ON and OFF.

Step 7

Stick two 3D-adhesive dots together, if necessary add later some hot glue. Place the 3d-adhesive dots on the rear side of the world map and fix that way the two pads together.
