Other Supplies

1" Flat brush, 11" x 14" Stretched canvas, Small liner brush, Old toothbrush, Medium stencil brush

Instructions

  1. Paint the top-quarter of canvas with Portrait Light. Before the paint dries, add water to the brush and blend the paint to create a soft watercolor finish covering the remaining three-quarters of the canvas as shown.
  2. Paint just the very bottom of the canvas with French Blue, before it dries add water to the brush and blend into the light watercolor area above creating a soft ombre effect. Let dry.
  3. Using Letter Template as a stencil, layout the word "KIND" and stencil with Metallic Gold. Let dry.
  4. Using small liner brush and Metallic Gold, add "Be" to canvas as shown. Let dry.
  5. Dip toothbrush into water and tap off most of the water. Then dip the toothpick into Wicker White, and use a fingertip to "flick" the top of toothbrush towards canvas to add splatter marks as shown.
  6. Repeat step 5 with Metallic Gold. Let dry.
