"Ribbon of Hope" Design Variation

Posted on: May 08th, 2018

 

Switching up the color palette on Social Artworking Designs is simple and can really add to your options for parties. We've swapped the original Ribbon of Hope, breast cancer awareness color palette for a patriotic one on this design variation. This design variation is perfect to celebrate the veterans in your life this spring (Memorial Day), summer (July 4th), and fall (Veteran's Day).

 

Note: You must purchase the original pattern to complete this design variation.

 

Name of piece: Ribbon of Hope

Approximate working time: 2.5 hours

Number of Social Artworking colors needed: 5

Number of Social Artworking brushes needed: 4

 

Social Artworking Colors Used:                                

Titanium White

Deep Red

Cobalt Blue

Deep Yellow

Mars Black

 

FOR STEP ONE:
Use this mixture instead – 10 parts Titanium White + 1 part Mars Black + 1 part Deep Yellow.

ADDITIONAL BACKGROUND STEP:
Use a 3/4" flat brush to loosely paint (not solid coverage) horizontal stripes in Deep Red. The stripes are about the thickness of two brushstrokes.

 

TRANSFER PATTERN: 
Follow the same instructions as in original painting for tracing the ribbon. Trace the rectangular shape and omit the word "hope". Once you remove the transfer paper and pattern, use a pencil to lightly add the word "hero".

 

FOR STEP TWO:
Use this mixture instead – 1 part Titanium White + 1 part Deep Yellow.


FOR STEP THREE:
Use Deep Yellow instead of the mixture noted.

 

STEP FOUR:
Follow original instructions.

 

FOR STEP FIVE:
Follow original instructions.

FOR STEP SIX:
Swap the word "hope" for "hero".

 

ADDITIONAL STEP:
Use No. 2 Flat brush to mix (2) parts Cobalt Blue with (1) part Titanium White. Use the mix to free-hand the stars. Do not rinse brush and highlight the stars with Titanium White.
