  PREPARATION:    On Tin- If not already  pre-primed, do so with your favorite tin preparation.

                                        On Wood -  sand and basecoat as needed  

  Start painting leaves first, than the flowers.


  Basecoat with PG. While still whet, outline the shadow side with a stroke of mix #2. Blend the stroke

  Into the base using a bit of water. For the light side use the same technique, using mix #1. While the

  Base is still wet, reinforce. When the leaves are dry, add thin detailed lines with mix #2 using brush #3

  ( on the shadow side only !).


  Apply two coats of CR. When second coat is applied start painting immediately to keep it wet until

  finished. Use brown (mix #3) for the center. Pull one stroke- from the top to the middle-  to divide the

  rose body from the petals. After the stroke is completed, blend it into the base with a little water.

  With W start on the inside center panel, blending with little W into the base ( almost like a glaze ).

  Pull a soft fat comma stroke, left and right from the petal. Reinforce some W strokes for highlights.

  When you work on the rose-petals, keep it moist. Outline half of the petal with W and shade into the petal.

  Reinforce with W apply white over strokes, .  thin thick  thin.  


  Apply two coats of CR. Immediately after the second coat, blend a little W into each petal. Reinforce,

  To achieve some highlighted petals. For the center use mix #3 and add BC dots around it.  


 Leaves               double-load PG with B

 Sm. Flowers      double-load each petal with CR and W.

 With brush #3 and paint mix #2 add space filling leaves and veins. White dots,  with the tip of the

 Brush pick up paint and apply gently dots.


Apply two thin coats of oil based polyurethane varnish.
