Assemble Reindeer

Once paint is dry to the touch, fit body panels to leg panels.

Add Paint

Lay drop cloth out along a long, flat surface with plywood lying on top. Using paint roller, cover entire front and back surface of each panel with two coats of paint, allowing one hour dry time between coats. Next add paint to the sides of each panel with angled paintbrush.

Storing the Reindeer

When the holidays are over, simply remove the leg panels from the bodies and store flat until next year.
