    Step 0 Example
  2. Varying the Americana Acrylics color makes for a fun-loving, bohemian-inspired look. Bolder colors were used for the bigger sections while softer colors were layered onto the smaller sections for contrast.

  3. Using the same steps as the tall candlestick, paint a variety of vibrant Americana Acrylics colors onto the short candlestick.
