General Directions

Caution to Parents: These "bugs" are decorations and not toys. Many of the pieces used are very small and should not be handled by young children. Be sure that all paints and glues are non-toxic.

Painting Tips: Poke a toothpick into each plastic foam piece to use as a handle while painting. Poke the opposite end of the toothpick into a scrap of STYROFOAM™ Brand Products to keep the piece upright while drying. For complete coverage, use a stiff stencil brush and gently scrub the paint into the pores of the plastic foam. Allow to dry and apply a second coat if necessary.

Joining Pieces: Break a toothpick in half. Dip ends in glue and insert pick between the pieces you wish to join. Dip the end of chenille stems and flower stamens into glue before inserting into plastic foam.
