           Mixtures:       1.    BL + C    2:1        2.    HB  + bit B        3.    B + BB    1:1       4.    BB + bit  C

 

            Brushes:     # 3  and # 5

    Preparation:

    For the Basecoat apply 2-3 coats of C. When dry, varnish with a Low Luster Varnish. After 24 hours of

     drying- time, base paint is ready for antiquing.

     The varnish will help to control the antiquing process and keeps the paint from soaking too much into the

     basecoat.

     For the ANTIQUING I used mix # 1, make a few thick stroked on the basecoat and wash with a moist

    sponge throughout the area. Afterwards, wipe off the paint with a soft rag, keeping the edges darker. 

 

    Tulip:

    Basecoat with 2 coats of HB. While wet, shade with mix #2 from the bottom up and use W from the top

     down (cover 3/4 of tulip). Overstroke with W. Keep tulip moist so overstrokes will blend into the base.

 

    Leaves:

    Basecoat with mix # 4 and outline with mix # 3.

 

    Space- filling comma strokes:

    " C " strokes and veins are done with mix # 3 or SBY and W for dots, Use brush # 3 balance colors and

    strokes.

 

    Finishing:

    Apply two coats of oil based polyurethane varnish
