Step 2 - Rainbow Bird of Paradise

Project Notes:

• With repeated touching, drafting film can pick up the oils from your skin, so always handle film by the edges.

• On a scale of 1-5 pressure, with 3 being normal writing pressure, use a 2 pressure for all steps unless otherwise noted. Lighter pressure allows you to apply more layers.
• Unless otherwise noted, a loop or scumbling stroke is used throughout. 

Strokes Used in this project

STEP 2: On BACK: Use BLUE LAKE and COBALT BLUE HUE to establish the blues and purples in the base of the forward petals and above the pink area.

Flip over to the FRONT and repeat the color applications to intensify color.

(Note: if you are working on paper rather than drafting film, just do this step on the front side of the paper.)
