I need directions on painting a flower basket, not painting on a

textilejoApril 16, 2011

I have been trying to find directions or pictures of flower baskets to tole paint.

I don't want to paint ON flower baskets I need to paint a basket, LOL and every search seems to lead me to painting on the baskets.

I also need painting ideas for little girls dresses for a wood craft project that I'm doing.

Sometimes too much information can be found online:-) and you look for hours and come up empty handed!

Basket weave is actually pretty easy to achieve. It's just staggering your horizontal brush strokes over your vertical strokes to create the look of a basket.

This free project from Artists Club might help.

Thanks kraftymom I'll check that out.

I just discovered that if I click on images on Google search and then click on line drawing I can get what I'm looking for. Don't you love it when you learn something new each day:-)
