POSITIVES: the pictures are of great quality and clearly show how to do each step. Also, the steps are concise and simple which makes it easy to follow. The best part of these instructions was the outline of the materials and the picture that showed them.

NEGATIVES: In step 12 it was hard to link the 2 pictures together. It is confusing to understand how it goes from a thick mixture to a smooth and perfectly blended mix. Another picture between the two would have been very helpful.

OVERALL: The instructions were great and I think I could easily repeat these instructions.
