  1. Using a flat brush, basecoat one of the vases using Sugar Metallic in Golden Hour. Let dry and apply a second coat.
  2. Using a flat brush, basecoat the wooden frame with Apple Red. Let dry. Using smaller brushes, paint flowers going up either side of the frame with Light Lavender, Buttercup and Sugar Metallic Polar Ice.
  3. On a porous vase, use a round brush to paint a floral  pattern using FolkArt Gelz in Punchy Purple, Peachy Pop and Endless Sky. Add water to the paint to creat wash effects and use the paint as is for darker pigmentation.
  4. Use watered down FolkArt Gelz to paint decorative balls to coordinate with the rest of the projects.
