Surface Preparation:

  1. This project surface came prepared with a Sunflower color background. If tin needs to be prepared with a basecoat color, first wash and dry the tin.
  2. Dampen a paper towel with rubbing alcohol. Wipe over entire tin surface with moistened paper towel to remove dirt and/or grease film. This will improve the adhesive properties of the enamel paints.
  3. Paint Sunflower (or color of choice) using long smooth strokes onto surface with the 3/4” Flat Brush. Allow to dry and reapply color if needed.

  5. Iris – Double load the No. 12 Flat Brush with Wicker White and Violet Pansy. Blend on the palette. Follow the iris petal strokes as shown on the worksheet; paint the iris petals creating wiggle on both sides of the stroke. This will create the back center petal of the iris.
