Instructions

Step 1

 Transfer radish pattern to cabinet door

Download and print the radish pattern. Center the pattern and a sheet of graphite transfer paper on your cabinet door and trace over the pattern to transfer it to the door panel. (If you don't have access to transfer paper, use the edge of a pencil lead to darken the underside of the pattern. Then trace over the pattern with a pencil or ballpoint pen to transfer the pencil graphite to the panel.)

Step 2

 Burn radish design into the cabinet door panel
Use a woodburning tool to burn the radish outlines onto the wood. Sand the cabinet door as needed with 180-grit sandpaper and wipe clean.

Step 3

 Paint radish colors within burned lines
Use artist brushes to paint the colors of the radish as shown. The leaves use three shades of green: Lime Twist, Prairie Brush, and Jalapeno Jelly. Then paint the top of the radish Oh So Red. While the paint remains moist, use a dry brush to feather the red into Cosmic Berry around the center. Feather in the white paint at the radish tip and let dry. Avoid getting paint in the shallow burned grooves.

Step 4

 Add background color around the painted radish
Paint the background color (Woodlawn Juniper) around the radish with an artist's brush, then finish the rest of the door in that color using a larger brush. For a distressed look, lightly sand the dried paint along portions of the door edges to expose the wood beneath.
