    4. Paint the flower and leaves with Patio Paint Outdoors™ colors of your choice. (See photo for color suggestions.) Let dry.
    5. Paint Cloud White in the center of each flower.
    6. Paint background with a 1” flat brush, using a crosshatch technique with the white canvas showing to create pattern. (Note: in photo, background at left is Tiger Lily Orange; middle is Blue Bahama; and at right, Marigold.)
