Softly Florals Plate

Airbrushing with E-Z Stroke™ colors gives this pretty plate a soft, feminine finish.

Instructions

  1. Wipe ware with damp sponge to remove any dust.
  2. Wrap the book in newspaper. This will be used as a plate stand for airbrushing. Also place newspaper under the wrapped book to protect work surface.
  3. Set air compressor to 40 psi, and connect air hose. Refer to directions on air compressor.
  4. Prepare each E-Z Stroke color as follows: mix 2 parts water with 1 part paint in separate paper cups. Mix well.
  5. Use X-acto knife to carefully cut out stencil pattern out of newspaper.
  6. Airbrush 2 even coats of Lemon Yellow over the entire plate.
  7. Lightly airbrush 1 coat of Orange around outer rim of plate.
  8. Protect plate by placing newspaper around the edge of the plate. Place stencil on front of plate and hold in place. Airbrush 2 even coats of Ivy Green 2 on leaves.
  9. Clean out airbrush by dipping into water cup and creating a backwash. Spray airbrush through water to make sure previous color is completely cleaned out.
Airbrush 2 even coats of Mulberry on flowers. Rotate stencil slightly to fit another set of petals in between first set of petals, and spray 3 even coats (the third coat creates the darker petals). Remove stencil.
