Now it is time to get your mixing palette ready with a small amount of pink, white and brown artisan gel paints. Also remember to add a small amount of base coat for cleaning your brushes afterwards.
With your no 2. one stroke brush, dip the toe end into white and the heel into pink.
Now blend the two colours on your palette until you are happy with the blend.
Using the edge of your brush make your line marking to help position where petals will go this will make also make it easier for beginners.
Now using the blend on your brush go from one line to the next, joining them together and on to the next petal doing the same. If your brush starts to drag reload your brush with your blend again. Once you are happy, cure for 10 secs.
Repeat this step again and cure for 10 secs.
Now your main flower is done you can now add some other petals using the same technique in step 5 create your lines first. Cure each layer for 10 secs.
You can use the remainder of the paint in your brush to dab bits in to the centre of the flower. Cure for 10 secs.
Once finished clean your brush with base coat.
You will need your ultra fine 000 brush next to dip into the white Artisan gel paint, to add some outer highlight areas to your petals, and also to add some small dots to the centre of the petal. Once you are happy with your petals cure for 10 secs.
Clean your brush with base coat.
You will now need the ultra fine 000 brush to dip lightly in the brown artisan. Now you can add branches placing slightly more pressure at the base of branch and lighter pressure as you move along. Don't forget to add some little branches in as well, and also add some brown dots to centre of flower. Once you are happy with the branches cure for 10 secs.
Clean your brush using base coat.
You will now need to dip your ultra fine brush dip into the pink artisan and place little dots onto some of the branches. Cure for 10 secs.
Clean your brush with base coat and now dip your brush back into the white artisan and add a really small dot of white to the pink flower bud. Once you are happy, fully cure your design for 60 secs.
Remember to clean your brush with base coat before putting it away.
Now you are ready for your final layer. You will need to seal in your design with Non-Wipe Top Coat and cure for 30secs.
(You can use another top coat if you would prefer a different finish, such as Velvet Matte or Hocus Pocus).
***Remember to take good care of your brushes and gels by keeping away from the lamp at all times as this could accidentally cure them. Please remember to use base coat to clean your brushes once you have finished using them.***
You can use cleanse or acetone on a lint free wipe to clean your palette once you have finished.
