My first post for 2016! In May.
I need to "congratulate" myself.
Anyway, I'm happy because quality content needs time, patience,
and a little luck (that's when something turns out better than planned).
Here's one of the 2016 trending technique, cake painting.
I wouldn't say this is a self-taught rose, I did look at some wet-on-wet techniques on Pinterest and YouTube because I wanted the smudged look.
But in the end, I dab gold paint with sponge around the edges of the rose.
Below are some photos and videos compiled.
Free hand draw the petals using a flat brush.
After looking at lots of videos, you can do that.
Watch the video below.
Rose Painting (Part 1)
Use gel colours and go over the inner edge.
If you feel the paint is too thick, use water to dilute.
If you want to give it a lighter colour, use white. I use Americolor Bright White.
Give the outer edge some frills.
Watch video below.

Lastly, blend the 2 colours with another brush stroke to the middle of the petals.
And I also smudged the blacks in between the petals.
Lovely picture courtesy from the bride.
Thank you Leesa and Hazriq!
