Step 3: Wing Outlines

Picture of Wing Outlines
Now it is time to add some detail.You will be painting on the side that used to be the outside of the bottle - The plastic butterflies will still curl so you want the paint to be on the top/outside when you set them on the table ( creating a tunnel between the table and butterfly)

Use the Liquid Lead( or Liquid Silver) to paint the outlines of the wings, and wing pattern for the butterfly. You can make this as detailed or simple as you like

If you aren't good at free handing you can set the clear plastic on top of the paper template and trace over the lines that were drawn on your template

Set Aside to dry.

I let mine sit overnight but depending on conditions you might be able to do the second step sooner.
