TECHNIQUE

  1. Spray ColorTEX on side surfaces of ceramic container.
  2. Apply 1-2 light coats of Champagne Silver spraying approximately 10-12” from surface. Let finish dry. ColorTEX takes 6-8 hours to dry thoroughly so prep the container before designing.
  3. Soak floral foam and cut to fit container.
  4. To blend flower hues, spray Tiger Lily on cymbidium orchids. Remember to spray fresh flowers 12″-15″ from petals.
  5. Arrange blossoms in a mounded fashion as shown. Use water tube picks for short stemmed orchid blossoms.
  6. Accessorize with votive holders embellished with pearled wire.
