INSTRUCTIONS

NOTES: Wipe all glass surfaces clean before painting. Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Paint the entire exterior of the candle votive in Serene.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Paint two rows of flowers in Cherish, using a loose-handed brushing technique (bouncing the brush on the surface).
    Step 1 Example
  3. Use this same loose-handed painting technique to paint small flowers in the center of each flower in Keepsake.
    Step 2 Example
  4. While the paint is still wet, paint a loose layer of Treasure in the center of each flower, building up slight texture.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Paint three dots in the center of each flower with Whisper.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Mix Whisper and Inheritance to make a pale yellow and use the mix to paint small flowers between all the larger flowers with five dots of the mix and a center dot of Whisper.
    Step 5 Example
