First thing is taping off everywhere that we want to see wood tones. This really helps with planning the visual flow!
We were so excited about the outcome!! And the journey was a blast,..
Working from top to bottom I took a plate and loaded it with each color as I went! (Full strength) Once I laid the red down I began adding in orange and blending it as I went,.. if I didnt like how it was flowing I simply sprayed with water!
