  8. Paint the gears die-cut with black Media gesso and let it dry.
  9. Sand it back slightly to reveal a bit of the silvery metallic finish.
  10. Use MFA paints (listed above) to paint die-cut.
  11. Sand the paint back in a random manner.
  12. Repeat steps #10 and #11 until you're happy with the result. I really wish you could see the layers of color and the texture on the piece.
  13. Adhere the painted gear rectangle onto the tag.
  14. Use screw-top brads to adhere metal gears to the painted gear rectangle.
  15. Adhere the dog and the girl to the tag as shown.
