step 11 - Mix Mocha paint and White opaque paint to create the color for the petals on the flowers.  Use brushes to paint them.  After they are dry, use a brush and Mocha paint alone, to darken the edges of the petals.  If you’re messy like I am, don’t worry.  Paint outside of the petal edges can be cleaned up with Q-tips and Acrylic Cleaner.
