General Rose Instructions:

  1. Double or triple load your brush. Make one shell-shaped petal of the rose at a time. Start with the lighter colors to the outside.

  2. Wiggle and pull the brush as you pivot the brush into a curve. You will have a slightly scalloped outer edge.

  3. End the stroke on the chisel edge to complete the first petal.

  4. Make some guideline dots in a circle to help you determine the positioning of the five outer petals. Overlap each petal onto the previous one.

  5. Paint the five shell-shaped petals to complete the outer skirt of the rose.


  6. To begin painting the inner row of petals, touch the brush at the right of the rose bud. Make another shell-shaped petal here.

Flower Centers:
Paint large circle area in Green Forest. Double load scruffy brush with Yellow Light and Classic Green for rose center. Paint smaller circle in center of Basil Green. Use handle end of brush to make small dots of Yellow Light and Wicker White.
