3.  Take the strips of paper and glue them down to another paint chip making sure that you glue them down on the wrong side of the paint chip.  Sandwich them between two books and weight them down so you get a nice seal.

4.  When they are all dry cut out a shape of a candy corn.  Don’t worry about perfection.  Imperfection means added whimsy!

6.  Let it dry overnight.  Flip it over and add the Dimensional Magic to the other side and wait for that to dry.
7.  After your piece is fully dry it will have a beautifully thick and shiny gloss coat over it.

8.  To make the edges smooth rub the sides onto a fine grit sanding sponge  That will make everything look neat.
