Create another mix of Prussian Blue, a small amount of Lamp Black, and Purple Pearl. Paint a variety of sizes of flowers in each color mix. Let dry.

    Step 9 Example
  11. Using E6000 Glue, adhere feathers to the top of the mask under the flowers. Add dots with the Silver Craft Twinkles Writer along the eyes that extend from the inner eye to the flowers. Add a dot of Silver to the centers of each flower and on the center embossed piece of the forehead.
