INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Brushes used: 3/4" flat brush, small filbert and a liner brush for details.

  1. Create a wide variety of patriotic crafts using the 4th of July Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint Set!
    Step 0 Example
  2. Choose a surface to paint on. A wooden round works perfectly for this project.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Print out the provided floral designs. Cut out the designs.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Arrange on your board until you achieve the design you like.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Think about how the different types of flowers and leaves create a balanced design. (TIP: Print out different sizes of florals for even more variety.)
    Step 4 Example
  6. Using clear tape, lightly tape the design together.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Gently lift and set aside.
    Step 6 Example
  8. Place transfer paper on the wooden board.
    Step 7 Example
  9. Lay taped floral template on top. (TIP: if needed, affix with tape to keep it all from moving while tracing.)
    Step 8 Example
  10. Using a pencil or pen, trace design.
    Step 9 Example
  11. Before removing tape, check to make sure all of the design was traced.
    Step 10 Example
  12. If you want to add more to your design, trace some more leaves or flowers.
    Step 11 Example
  13. Don't be afraid to draw some extra free-hand designs using a pencil.
    Step 12 Example
  14. Gather your paints, a palette and some brushes.
    Step 13 Example
  15. I poured some of each color Red Hot, Blue Lagoon, True Blue, Cotton Ball, Black Tie into the palette. I also mixed some Cotton Ball into each of the following colors: Blue Lagoon, True Blue, Black Tie and Red Hot. This creates a tint (highlight) of each color.
    Step 14 Example
  16. I also mixed some black with each of the blues (Blue Lagoon and True Blue) and the red (Red Hot). This creates a shade (shadow) for each color. I also mixed a grey. (Approximately a 1:1 ration of Black Tie and Cotton Ball) This gives you even more choices when painting your design.
    Step 15 Example
  17. Basecoat the wood with Yellow Gold using a large flat brush.
    Step 16 Example
  18. Paint the entire surface and allow to dry.
    Step 17 Example
  19. Using a small filbert brush, paint the "rose" shaped flowers with the red shade (the Red Hot and Black Tie).
    Step 18 Example
  20. Continue to paint other flower shapes with the lighter blue (Blue Lagoon and Cotton Ball).
    Step 19 Example
  21. Paint the "daisy" flower shapes with the grey mixture.
    Step 20 Example
  22. Paint remaining flowers with white and the darker blue colors. Keep adding colors using different mixtures for different shapes. Add lighter colors on top of darker mixtures. Mix red and blue to create a dark purple. Dot that color into the center of some flowers using the end of the paintbrush. This will help add dimension and variation.
    Step 21 Example
  23. Add highlight colors to flowers and leaves.
    Step 22 Example
  24. Add lighter blues over darker blue colors.
    Step 23 Example
  25. Add another layer of red to the "rose" shapes to brighten even more.
    Step 24 Example
  26. Add accent dots of red using the end of the paintbrush.
    Step 25 Example
  27. Using a liner brush, paint the stems and outlines of the traced design.
    Step 26 Example
  28. Keep adding detail to really make the design pop.
    Step 27 Example
  29. Add accents of shimmer by adding the Silver Moon Galaxy Glitter to some of the flower petals.
    Step 28 Example
  30. Add some Silver to some of the grey areas for added metallic sheen.
    Step 29 Example
  31. Paint other decorative pieces to go along with your floral design.
    Step 30 Example
  32. This non-traditional 4th of July project is great for decorating a front door or any place you want to add a floral patriotic design.
