Supplies for Hot Air Balloon Painting Easy

Directions

  1. Start by painting the background. I like to apply the paint directly to the wood slice and then use a flat flash to blend the paint colors. I typically blend two colors at a time, cleaning my brush between sections. I don’t mind the colors overlapping and streaking into one another and I find that a drier brush helps with adding dimension. Don’t worry about the blending being perfect.
  2. To add the clouds use a round brush and start with just white.
  3. At the bottom of each cloud add a bit of color. For the clouds in the blue background add blue and add blue and pink in the middle and lower clouds.    
  4. Once the clouds are finished, draw in pencil an outline of the hot air balloon.
  5. Paint each section of the hot air balloon with a small round paint brush.  
  6. Small white lines help to accent the balloon. 
  7. Add the hot air balloon basket and ropes.
  8. At the top of the mason jar wood cutout paint silver for the lid and add dark gray lines.
