Use of 'and then ' or 'then' , makes the use of 'second' not necessary
hence only E option has the correct way of using 'second'

IMO E

Kudos if you like

“AND” is necessary here because there’re 2 independent clauses:

1) We will begin with painting
2) We will start the decoupage process

Without “AND”, this sentence will be run-on sentence. Remember “, FANBOYS” rules.
