Prep It:

  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Artist brushes in different sizes
  • Wall paint in the colors of your choice
  • Behr's Faux Glaze
  • Plastic cups

DO IT:

  1. I first sketched the flower layout that I wanted for the wall on a piece of paper - I did a variety of flowers with leaves and then one bunch of grapes with twisted vines. I knew I was going to put the shelf in front of it so I painted all on the permimeter of the wall.
  2. I then sketched the flowers directly onto the wall using a pencil in case I messed up
  3. I created a color guide for myself on the piece of paper to map out where I would paint what color
  4. I thinned the paint colors to make them look more like watercolor by using 1 part Behr's Faux Glaze to 1 part whatever color I was using in plastic cups and stirred it using the handle of a paintbrush
  5. I painted over and within the pencil lines using large brush strokes to look very organic and imperfect. I layered the colors to add complexity.
  6. Let dry!
