January 16thProject:  flowers on glass plate Vicki Fornito 

Leaves can be any colors of green utilizing a dark and a light color, no need for a middle value green unless you want as we will be blending the dark and light beside each other which will create a medium value.  Flowers’ colors will be one color plus a white or if you want to utilize a third color to add more dimension that is fine.  Geraniums come in a lot of different colors so pick your favorite colors if you want, you don’t have to go by what I used.  There is no pattern for this piece as you will not be able to put a pattern on a glass unless you want to paint it on which is up to you. The following list is what I used:

Using Folkart  Gloss Acrylic Paints OR  DecoArt Multi-surface Gloss Enamels use the following colors:  Depending on what paints you can find – you can mix the two paint brands, they do fine.

Folkart  - Thicket (Dark Green)

Folkart – Hauser Green medium

DecoArt – Apple Green for a lighter color if you wish

Folkart – any Red

Folkart – any pink

Folkart  - any orange

Folkart  or Deco – WHITE

Folkart or Deco – Dark Red

BRUSHES:  Filbert – size 8 or 6 depending on what surface you are painting on.  If you are using a large white plate – I used an #8 filbert for the leaves

                     Medium sized flat brush for the leaves

                      Any liner brush

                      Stylus with a medium fine tip

Additional Supplies:   Large white dinner plate which you can buy at the Dollar Tree   Regular supplies needed for painting
