Step 3: Let Dry and Remove Tape

Allow your finished bracelet to dry for at least 30 minutes. You can lightly tap any painted areas to make sure they're dry and if so you can proceed to remove your tape. To ensure that your bracelet lasts through wear and tear, you can finish off with a coat of clear shellac like Mod Podge or a spray shellac like Bulls Eye.

For even crisper lines, I would suggest using a clear coat first over the tape. That way if there's any leakage under the tape, you won't see it, and the following layers of color will be perfectly crisp!
Thanks for the tip scoochmaroo! If you give it a try, we'd love to see your work.
I love how the design is simple, but is very bold!
