  • Level:beginner
  • Time:1 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Mask off inside bottom of bowl. Make sure that the tape is pressed down evenly so paint will not seep underneath.
  • 2
    Paint unmasked areas of bowl Orange Sherbet. Let dry. Paint just the inside and edge of the bowl School Bus; this will create a more “Sunflower” Yellow color!
  • 3
    When completely dry, remove masking tape. Carefully paint the inside base of bowl Brown Sugar. (Note: you can tape with masking tape again to protect where you painted the sides!).
  • 4
    To create the different sized dots, look at the ends of various paintbrushes. They are usually different diameters. The end of a new pencil will work as well!
  • 5
    Place a small amount of Mushroom paint on palette or paper plate. Dip in brush end to paint and create dots on to bottom of the bowl. Let dry and repeat with smaller size brush ends to create dots with Cocoa Bean and Muted Gold so it resembles the center of a sunflower.
  • 6
    Option: use Sharpie pen to mark the “creases” or lines between each side of the bowl so they look like separate petals.
