Apply the lines you see here - do not apply all of the lines you
drew out with the pencil! These were meant as guidelines only.

Use the heavy kistka.
When you have double-checked your lines, take a cotton swab and dip it in the Bright Red dye. Put a blob of dye in the centre of the curl formations (check ahead to the next step to see for certain where) and let it sit for a few minutes. Once it reaches the desired color, dab it dry with a tissue.
