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.)
  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.)
  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.
  4. Using a #8 round brush, randomly paint small accents lines in Marigold throughout the crate, including the sides and back.
  5. Mix Cloud White and Wrought Iron Black 1:1. Using a #8 round brush, outline the pots and flowers.
