Today we are creating an abstract floral cake platter, I have had this cake platter for almost two years, my son gave it to me for Mother's Day and its never been used. So I thought why not create something more my style instead of a plain glass platter.
Supplies used are very limited which is a plus!
- Glass Cake Platter
- Pebeo Vitrea 160 Glossy Paint in Pepper Red
- Pebeo Vitrea 160 Glossy Paint in Ink Black
- Princeton Art and Brush Co Flat Brush and a small round brush for details if wanted.
First you need to prep your surface, I completely cleaned the platter with dishwashing liquid and hot water, I also dried it thoroughly before starting the flowers.
I looked up some images of poppies to give me some inspiration. I wanted to keep things loose and easy not creating things too uniformed, I used sweeping brush strokes to create little red flowers buds.
I then went in with the ink black colour and worked quickly with the black accents.
So there you have it! if you have a poor sad cake platter that needs some life! this is a fun and very beginner project you yourself could tackle with no problems at all!!
See you with another project soon.
