    4. Use the Iris, Flamingo , Lemon Zest, Peach Silk, and Turquoise Water blends to paint "blob" shapes along the Cactus dripping lines, bouncing the paintbrush around to mimic cascading flowers. (Alternate colors as you move around the candleholder.)
    5. Instruction #3
    6. Add "highlight" blobs to each set of cascading flowers with a complementary color. For Peach Silk and Iris sections, use Flamingo; for Lemon Zest, use Turquoise Waters; and for Turquoise Waters, use Lemon Zest.

    8. Add tiny dots in the center of each "flower" along the cascading branch in a color that will pop on the surface. Use Lemon Zest for Iris flowers; Turquoise Waters for Peach Silk, Flamingo, and Lemon Zest.; and Peach Silk for Turquoise Waters.
