Other Supplies

6” terra cotta flower pot, 6” clay saucer, Container for water, Paper towels, Foam plate, Masking or stencil tape, Household sponge

Instructions

Surface Preparation: Wipe off the flower pot and saucer with a paper towel.

Painting Instructions:

  1. Colorbook paint/basecoat paint the following areas: Rim of Flower Pot and Saucer – Wicker White Bottom of Saucer - Licorice Flower Pot – Parisian Pink. Allow to dry and reapply a second coat if necessary.
  2. Apply thin masking tape randomly around the base of the flower pot. Moisten a household sponge with water, squeeze to remove excess and dab the moist sponge into Bright Baby Pink. Dab the paint filled sponge on a paper towel then dab color onto the exposed areas of the flower pot. Let dry and remove tape.
  3. To paint daisies, load the #12 Flat brush with Wicker White. Apply pressure to the brush using the entire width of the brush to create each petal; leave a circular space in the middle for the flower center. Load the #12 Flat brush with Parisian Pink; paint the centers of the daisies. Add thin veins to each flower petal using the #2 script liner brush loaded with thinned Apple Orchard.
  4. Load the #12 Flat brush with Fresh Foliage; paint the stems using the chisel edge of the brush.
  5. For leaves, double load the #12 Flat brush with Fresh Foliage and Apple Orchard. Add a touch of Wicker White to the Apple Orchard side of the brush, blend on the palette and paint a leaf on either side of the stem. Set the brush down at the base of the leaf at an angle, press, pull and lift up to a chisel edge to slide the brush to a point to complete each leaf.
  6. Thin Licorice to an inky consistency and freely outline the daisy centers, the petals, stems, and leaves, and add a center vein to each leaf.
  7. Add Wicker White dots to the center of each daisy.
  8. Polka dots – Add Black polka dots around the rim of the flower pot and along the top edge of the saucer using the handle end of the 3/4" brush.
  9. Don’t forget to sign your name. Enjoy!
