  • Green Apple (DSS75)
  • Hauser Light Green (DSS47)
  • Olive Green (DSS98)
  • Ultra White (DSS36)

Other supplies

  • paper towels
  • #10 flat brush
  • craft glue
  • #0 liner brush

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Apply the pattern to the bell using white transfer paper. Repeat three times around the bell.
  2. Using the #1 liner brush, do all of the tole strokes in Ultra White.
  3. Using the #4 flat brush for the berries and the #10 flat brush for the holly leaves, apply one coat of Ultra White to all. (This will keep the Dark Rose of the bell from bleeding through.)
  4. Basecoat the holly leaves in Hauser Light Green using the #10 flat brush.
  5. Dampen the #10 flat brush with Transparent Medium and float the shadows with Olive Green: First float the shadows dividing the leaves, then across the bottom of each leaf, and lastly through the center of each leaf.
  6. Add a touch of Wine to the Olive Green and deepen the shadows at the base of the leaves using the #10 flat brush.
  7. Float the highlights across the top and through the center with a mix of equal parts Hauser Light Green and Green Apple using the #10 flat brush.
  8. Brighten the highlights here and there with a float of Green Apple using the #10 flat brush.
  9. Basecoat the berries in Dark Rose using the #4 flat brush.
  10. Dampen the #4 flat brush with Transparent Medium and float the shadows with Wine.
  11. Highlight with touches of Ultra White plus a touch of Dark Rose.
  12. Using the #1 liner brush, do the snowflakes in a mix of equal parts Ultra White and Dark Rose and dot the ends using the stylus.
  13. Using the #1 liner brush, apply Ice Crystal to the tole strokes and Celebration Pink to the snowflakes.
  14. Using the #4 flat brush, add touches of Limelight to the holly leaves and Sizzling Red to the berries.

HELPFUL HINTS

Throughout the project, dampen the brush with Transparent Medium to float. Using Transparent Medium instead of water will keep the paint from bleeding out into the bell.
