Flower Painting Tutorial
Next in the customer created tutorials is traditional flower painting.
Steph is new to signwriting but has been painting these roses for a while after being shown by a friend, and has been putting them to great use on tins, signs, and flowerpots! Her folk art style is a beautiful insight into her horse-drawn way of life.
The flower begins as a simple circle, then strokes are added to build up the flower, letting each layer dry each time.
Steph uses a signwriting chisel in a size 5 and uses the shape of the chisel to create the sharp points and smooth strokes.
For the colours, 1-Shot paints in imitation gold and orange are used for yellow roses and salmon pink and chamois for white roses. Generally, choose a darker colour for the background and a lighter shade for the petals. The 1-Shot colours mix brilliantly so can be used to make endless shades!
