Add More Colors

Continue the above steps, adding paint colors and ridgelines as desired. Some ridgelines will run all the way across the dresser while others will drop off halfway across, just like a real landscape painting.

Paint the Top

Once the last ridgeline is created with the last color, simply paint the rest of the dresser, including the top, in that last color. Let dry completely for 24 hours before putting the hardware back on.
