Preparing your colours

On a palette or in small pots, prepare the colours by blending 50% white + 50% colour.

Save a wood stick to make the support. With the flat paintbrush, paint several rings of different colours and sizes on half the length of each wood stick. Put them in a glass (painted side up) and leave to dry. Then paint the other side of the sticks.Leave until thoroughly dry.

With a fine paintbrush, draw small dots or small lines  Again, start with one half of the stick, leave to dry ‘fresh paint up’ in the glass then paint the second half  Leave until thoroughly dry
