1. Place the piece on the banding wheel. Thin CN 022 Bright Saffron with water. Using the No. 4 liner, place bands of CN 022 Bright Saffron on the piece as desired, leaving space for the design. Refer to the photo as needed.

2. Place the transfer paper underneath the pattern and transfer onto the piece using the ballpoint pen.

3. Paint broad generous strokes to fill the leaf using the No. 8 round loaded with CN 181 Light Kiwi. Paint from the center vein to the outer edge of the leaf.

4. Add shadow strokes to the leaf using the No. 8 round loaded with CN 172 Bright Kelp, referring to the photo as needed.

6. Side load the No. 8 round with CN 123 Dark Nautical and apply to the grapes to shade for definition.
