INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Using a 3/4" flat brush, paint the inside of the crate Marigold. Rinse brush. Paint the outside of the crate Cloud White. Trace the pattern onto the crate using a pencil and grey transfer paper. Use a #8 round brush to paint the flower pots Petunia Purple, Sweet Pea, and Azalea. (I added just a touch of Cloud White to the Petunia Purple.)
    Step 0 Example
  2. Mix lighter colors of Petunia Purple, Sweet Pea, and Azalea by mixing each separately 1:1 with Cloud White. Using a #8 round brush, paint polka dots and the pot rims with the lightened Petunia Purple, Sweet Pea, and Azalea. (Refer to photo for color placement.)
    Step 1 Example
  3. Using the same colors from the previous step, paint the flowers with a #8 round brush. (Refer to photo.) Rinse brush. Add dots to the middle of the flowers in Marigold and Azalea.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Using a #8 round brush, randomly paint small accents lines in Marigold throughout the crate, including the sides and back.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Mix Cloud White and Wrought Iron Black 1:1. Using a #8 round brush, outline the pots and flowers.
