Step 1
Take your pencil and lightly draw abstract wave shapes on the inside of the dish in small groups – leaving a space in between each wave shape.

Step 2

Next, make a light blue by taking the white paint and squeezing some on to the palette, then add a small amount of blue paint and mix together. Make sure to mix quite a bit as it’s hard to get the same shade each time should you run out and you need this same colour for other steps.

 

Now you need to paint every other shape in this colour using the number 6 paint brush, making sure to go over the rim of the dish.

 

Top tip: When the paint dries down it will be a couple shades darker than what you have mixed so keep this in mind when mixing colours.

Step 3
Using just the blue paint not the one you mixed, take the same size paint brush and paint in the remaining shapes.

Step 4
Once your paint has dried, turn over the dish to paint the sides. Using the same brush and your left over light blue paint, you need to paint some lines using the paint on the rim of the dish as a guide to match the shapes up.

Step 5
Next, using just the blue paint and the same brush, repeat step 4 for this colour.

Step 6

Turn the dish right side up. Take the number 0 brush and paint small marks with the light blue paint over different parts of the blue painted shapes.

 

Then repeat this with the blue paint but over the light blue shapes.

 

Now your heart dish is complete!
