Tip
Step 1: Tip

Tip a teaspoon of  FLIPTEZ® into your blending pots. We selected orange, brown, burgundy and black from the FLIPTEZ® Starter pack and green # 10153 from the Jungle Theme Pack.

Spray
Step 2: Spray

Spray the FLIPTEZ® powder with water using the EzyShaid® atomiser- about 20 sprays.

Mix
Step 3: Mix

Use a cotton tip to mix the FLIPTEZ® into paint. Use one cotton tip per colour.

Dauber
Step 4: Dauber

Dip an EzyShaid® dauber into your FLIPTEZ® paint. We started with brown.
Hint: do a few practice dots on a spare piece of paper to make sure your paint the right consistency and that you have the right amount of paint on you dauber.

 Brown Dots
Step 5: Brown Dots

Dot the brown FLIPTEZ® paint onto your watercolour paper. We used a circular pattern of different sizes.

Repeat step 5 using your orange FLIPTEZ® paint.

Wine Dots
Step 8: Wine Dots

Repeat step 5 using the burgundy FLIPTEZ® paint.

Green Dots

Use the green FLIPTEZ® paint to dot the blank paper between your circular patterns.

Detail
Step 10: Detail

When your paint is dry add detail to your piece by dipping a cotton tip into black FLIPTEZ® paint.

Black Dots
Step 11: Black Dots

Use the cotton tip as a smaller dauber and stamp black dots into the orange ones.

White Highlight
Step 12: White Highlight

Highlight your burgundy dots by outlining them with liquid paper. The liquid paper stays slightly raised, which looks great. We  also added a few white liquid paper dots to the centre of some of the black dots created in step 10.



Highlight Black
Step 13: Highlight Black

One circular pattern of brown dots (top left hand corner of the finished picture) was outlined using a black marker.

Fantastic!
Step 14: Fantastic!

Your piece is finished. It will look great on any wall. We have also used this art work to create the shell for a turtle!
