  1. Prepare metal bucket surface by washing with warm water and soap and wiping dry.  
  2. Take your 1" brush from the basic brush set and paint stripes around the bucket with varying widths, starting with Blue Sky, then Poodle Skirt, Wedding Cake, and lastly, Habanero.  
  3. Create the scalloped edges by taking the largest foam pouncer, dipping it in the corresponding color of choice, and pouncing circles along the edge of the stripe. The scallop is created by layering half of the foam pouncer over the stripe. 
  4. Repeat with remaining colors until bucket is finished.
