See “Tips and Techniques” at Michaels.com for easy instructions on how to paint the One Stroke way!
Clean the glass vase with rubbing alcohol on paper towel to remove any oily residue.
Double load ¾” angle brush with Thicket and Lemon Custard (yellow on short side).
Create foliage vine all the way around the vase as shown: paint “wiggle” leaves with yellow side of brush to the outside edge, then add clusters of long-basic leaves curving away from the main branch.
Double load 3/8” angle brush with Wicker White and Violet Pansy. Paint some comma-stroke flowers joining the greenery spray. Slide on the chisel edge of brush, stroking away from the greenery in a fluffy purple “cluster flower”.
Double load #8 filbert brush with Magenta and Wicker White. Create Chrysanthemum blossom by starting at the top of the flower with small comma strokes, then adding layers of petals gradually getting larger until you reach the row of lower petals next to the stem. Be sure to pull each stroke toward the center of the flower as you lift and pull away from the comma stroke. Join the last row of comma stroke petals to the stem. Flip the brush every other row so you are leading with light color one row, then leading with dark color the next.
Cure enamels paint according to directions on bottle.
To clean: ONLY wipe off gently with damp cloth. NEVER soak in water.
