Step 1 Body: apply 3 coats of Blazing Saddles to the entire piece with a round brush. Let dry.
Step 2 Collar: with a detail brush apply 3 coats of Kermit to the collar. Then 2 coats of Polar Bear to the dog tag and finally 2 coats of Black Lab to the collar buckle and accents on the tag.
Step 3 Nose & Mouth: with a detail brush, apply 2 coats of Black Lab to the nose and 2 coats of Polar Bear to the area right below the mouth. Then outline the lips with Black Lab.
Step 4 Ears: apply 2 coats of Mocha Chino inside the ears.
Step 5 Eyes:
- Clean excess glaze in eyes and then apply 3 coats of Polar Bear to each eye.
- Iris of the eyes: apply 2 coats of Mocha Chino in a circle on the inside center-top of each eye. Be sure to leave a sliver of white showing on the right, left and bottom of each eye.
- Pupil of eyes: begin by painting a small circle of Black Lab on top of the iris (Mocha Chino), and then increase the circle a little more. Hold your Chihuahua in front of you to see if the pupils are even and large enough. When the size is to your liking, paint 2 more coats of Black Lab to the pupils. Be sure to leave some of the white and Mocha Chino showing on the sides and bottom to give the eyes dimension.
- After eyes dry; apply a white highlight in each eye using you’re a detail brush. Be sure that you place the highlight in each eye going in the same direction (i.e. either top-left or both top-right. Not one on top-left and one on top-right).
Step 8 With a detail brush apply Polar Bear highlight to the tip of the nose. Then apply 1-2 coats of
Polar Bear for the stripe between the eyes.
