Toni’s Tuesday Time-lapse Video:) Bluebonnet Variegated Vase

16 Jun

“Variety’s the very spice of life, that gives it all it’s flavour.”
― William Cowper

******************

One of my favorite and signature things to paint are Bluebonnets. I live in Texas, after all. Gotta love Bluebonnets. When I paint on a vase, it’s usually a clear glass vase, but occasionally I like to mix it up and pre-paint a variegated background so the colors can pop out a little better.

I use FolkArt Enamel Paint, and with a makeup foam wedge, I start with royal blue on the bottom, although, I work upside down, so actually it’s the top. Then I dab softly about 1/3 the way down, then I add white to the middle and blend that softly to get light blue, then end with pure white and soften. You have to work fast so it doesn’t dry, but it makes a great variegated look. Then on to the Bluebonnets. (A quick 30 second video)

Very fun, fast, and fabulous… if I don’t say so myself…but I do.🤦‍♀️
