instructions

  1. Create a wash of white over the entire raw wood surface.  Using a 3/4" Flat brush loaded with both Wicker White and Floating Medium, brush the mixture over the surface.  Add Floating Medium to help even out the color.  Allow to dry.
  2. Roses – Create a light pink color by mixing Bright Pink into a puddle of Wicker White.  Paint the roses using a No. 12 Flat brush double loaded with the light pink paint mixture plus Wicker White.  Create a variety in sizes and shapes of roses and note that the flowers should not all be painted in the same direction.  Hint:  Think of how the flowers would be displayed in a bouquet.
  3. Eucalyptus Leaves – Create a light, bright green puddle of paint by mixing Wicker White with a touch of Classic Green.  Use the chisel edge of the No. 12 Flat brush to paint the stem or stalk of the eucalyptus with the light, bright green color mix.  Double load the No. 12 Flat brush with this same green mix and Wicker White to paint each individual eucalyptus leaf.
  4. Using the No. 12 Flat brush loaded with both the light, bright green color mix and Floating Medium, paint faint Basic One Stroke leaves as background or shadow leaves around the bouquet.
  5. Next, paint additional Basic One Stroke leaves using the No. 12 Flat brush double loaded with the Classic Green and Wicker White. Add a touch of Floating Medium to allow the leaves to be slightly translucent.
  6. To accent the bouquet, add “puffs” of white color here and there to simulate small groupings of baby’s breath flowers.  Using a 3/4" Scruffy brush lightly loaded with Wicker White, lightly pounce the surface to create these delicate puffs of color.
  7. Lastly, sign your name and enjoy.
