I’ve been saving some great dried botanicals lately that I’ve wanted to re-purpose by painting them! So, in today’s video… I wanted to show you a few useful painting tips, as well as touch on a couple key points to keep in mind when repurposing your dried botanicals. It’s important to keep in mind when repurposing any botanical material that there may be both pros and cons. On one hand, you’re re-using a product at the end of it’s lifecycle, giving it new life and significantly extending its use. On the other hand, this organic product can no longer be composted, since it’s now been painted. This decision is yours to make, but I believe it’s important to always keep these key points in mind. If you do choose to paint your dried botanicals and get the extended life that comes with it, there are a few key steps that I’ve found to work best in getting the cleanest and most consistent coverage, without overusing. For today’s demo, I’ll be using using a combination of both ‘Super Silver’ & UberMatte ‘Mist’… both from Design Master Color Tool, which I’ve found to give the best coverage compared to paints found at big box home improvement stores, as the Design Master paints are specifically formulated for use on botanicals. I hope you enjoy today’s tutorial, if you did.. make sure to give it a thumbs up and subscribe to the channel for future videos! #Paint #DriedBotanicals #FloralDesign You can also follow me on… Instagram – https://www.instagram.com/hitomigilliam/ Facebook – http://www.fb.com/HitomiGilliamAIFD Website – http://hitomigilliam.com Music provided by Musicbed (https://www.musicbed.com)
