1. Stamp an 8x10" sheet of paper with the large collage image from the Jumbo UM stamp sheet and adhere to the canvas. Later, when wiping away some black paint, the stamped images will create a subtle background.

    2. Stencil several sunflowers onto the canvas with modeling paste. Allow the paste to dry and apply four additional layers to build dimension. (Paste must be dry between each layer.)

    3. Build additional layers of paste within the center area of the sunflower, as desired.



    4. Apply a coat of black acrylic paint to the canvas with a foam brush. Rub some of the paint away with a paper towel or rag.

    5. Paint the raised sunflower areas with yellow acrylic. (No need to be an "artist". Simply follow the stenciled shape.)
