TEACUPS:

Purple Daisy
1. Use a pencil to lightly sketch half of a Gerber Daisy onto saucer and teacup around handle as shown.

3. Pull in short strokes of Olive in the flower centers with the No. 4 Round, then accent with strokes of Dark Olive.

4. Use the No. 1 Liner to loosely outline and pull lines through petals with Cobalt Jet Black and add dots of Cobalt Jet Black in flower centers. Let dry.

Orange Pansy
1. Use a pencil to lightly and loosely sketch a Pansy onto saucer and side of teacup as shown.

2. Using the No. 6 and No. 8 Rounds (depending on the size of the flower), loosely brush a coat of Neon Orange onto outer petals, leaving centers. Loosely fill in centers with Neon Red.
