This is the first step before you begin painting on your glass. You may wash your glass and then clean off with rubbing alcohol, or just clean off with the rubbing alcohol. Just try not to touch the areas to be painted once you have cleaned them.
Step 2: Select Your Paint
At this point you will need to pick the first two colors you will be using. In this case, I am using Cerelian Blue and Warm White.
Step 3: Load Your Brush
Please the two colors close to each other on your place or palette. Dip one corner of your flat brush in to one color the and opposite corner of your brush in to the other color. Begin to move the brush back and forth a few times and repeat this step. Your brush should be loaded at least 2/3rds of the way full. It is important to have plenty of paint on your brush. This will allow your brush to flow nicely creating a lovely painting.
Step 4: Begin Painting Your Flower Petals
Start with the first petal that is at the top of your flower. Start on the chisel edge of your brush. Push and come around ending up on the chisel edge. Proceed in this same manner around the flower, until five petals have been painted. You may add more paint as needed. It is not necessary to move your paint brush back and forth on your palette or plate after adding more paint. When you begin your first stroke, do three blending strokes before creating the first petal. I would recommend this each time you add more paint and begin a new step.
