2. Creating the bottom tier design
Time to get the ruler and paint brushes out. Paul first measures then paints in the design using a range of complimentary colours and patterns.
3. Framing the feature
Using simple techniques Paul then frames the painted areas which really brings the colour out. It also allows you to straighten up any wayward lines.
4. Making the medallion flower
Paul then moves onto the main decoration for the bottom tier. He creates and then paints this beautiful medallion flower which really brings out the colours in the background.
5. Painting the middle tier
Using a range of colours, Paul now adds some decorative brush strokes to bring out the pattern on the middle tier.
6. Painting the top tier
You can use your own artistic flare here or follow Paul as he goes for a simple drop down of golds and bronze colours.
7. Making the flower
In this lesson, Paul makes a simple, but effective, wafer paper flower. This really brings the design to life, so just goes to show that it doesn’t have to be difficult to look good!
8. Finishing touches
This is where the flower and medallion flower get added and this stunning design is now complete.
