Tall wood birdhouse, Container for water, Paper towels, Foam plate, Scissors, Ribbon, Metal eye screw, Fine grit sandpaper
Surface Preparation: Sand any surface rough areas with fine grit sandpaper. Wipe with a paper towel.
- Colorbook paint / basecoat paint the following areas: Roof – Lemon Custard Roof Edges and Perch – Wicker White, Body of Birdhouse – Grass Green
- Allow to dry and reapply a second coat if necessary.
- To create the look of roof shingles, shade or shadow the ridges. Double load the #12 flat brush with Fresh Foliage and a small amount of Grass Green. Horizontally stroke across the roof keeping Fresh Foliage close to the ridge creating the shingles.
- Randomly paint the daisies on the body of the birdhouse. Load the #12 flat brush with Wicker White to paint the petals. Set the brush down at an angle, pull and lift. Paint 6 daisy petals for each flower and 3 petals for each bud.
- Add the centers to the flowers by pouncing a double loaded 1/2” scruffy brush. To double load the brush, pounce half of the brush into the puddle of Lemon Custard and the other half of the brush fill with Pure Orange. Once loaded, pounce the daisy centers keeping the Lemon Custard to the top of the flower center.
- Add stems by double loading the No. #12 flat brush with Fresh Foliage and Lemon Custard. Paint the stems using the chisel edge of the brush. Using the same brush and colors paint leaves.
- Attach the small metal eye screw to the top center of the birdhouse.
- Cut ribbon to desired length and thread through the eye screw and knot the ends, creating a hanger.
- Don’t forget to sign your name. Enjoy!
