What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time letting each layer of paint, gesso or top coat dry. The top always dries first, so check the sides carefully to make sure they are dry also before proceeding. My other advise would be to have fun with color combinations. How about purple with white or purple with black spots also:)
