Step-by-step

STEP 1: Preparing your brushes

When using water-based paint soak your brush in an inch of water for 10-15min, then remove and spin in between your hands to remove excess water.

STEP 2: Prepare your paper

Prepare your art space by using drop sheets to protect the area from any unexpected mess. Lay 2 paper sheets next to each other to have easy access and ensure consistent brush strokes.

STEP 3: Apply first colour

Using your Monarch 38mm Moulding & Skirting Brush, apply your first colour in a straight line. Repeat the same process on the opposite side of the same paper sheet. On the 2nd paper, apply the same colour in the centre, creating a big, thick brush stroke.

STEP 4: Apply second colour

Using your Monarch 22mm Windows and Doors Brush, make a straight brush stroke right next to your first line. Use a lighter contrasting colour to give your canvas a beautiful colour variation.

STEP 5: Apply a textured paint colour

For your third line, use Monarch 25mm Detail Brush to add metallic or textured colour to give an uplifting effect to your canvas.

STEP 6: Finishing up

Once the paint is dry, install both your canvases in wooden frames in different directions to give it 2 different styling effects. Congratulations, you’re all done! Be sure to wash your brushes
and store your paint and other accessories properly for use on your next project.
