Sharon’s Soft Blending Method (My favorite medium for this is Deco Art Traditions Blending and Extender
I use this blending method to blend two colors together.

1. Apply a thin coat of extender to the area where you want to add a color or blend.
2. Next, pick up the color you are going to use on a clean brush and apply this on the same area to which you applied the blending medium.
3. Blend this using a Mop or round bristle brush by gently tapping the edge of the paint, softening it into the base color.
4. Sometimes I pick up a tiny amount of the paint on the brush, blotting on a paper towel and pounce this directly on the place I want to blend. But be sure to add the extender to that area before you do this.
5. Always make sure that you dry your work between each step before going on to the next application of the extender.
6. I like having 2 or 3 of the same size brushes to blend with, but if you only have one and you need to change colors, simply wipe it across a baby wipe a few times to remove most of the paint. Then dry it on a paper towel. You don’t want to clean a mop or bristle brush it in water because it does not work well when it is wet. They have to be “dry” to work properly.

I prefer Graphite Transfer paper by Mona Lisa. This does a beautiful job and does not rub off all over your project. It comes in Black and White
Sand and tack, add a coat of wood sealer and when dry lightly sand and tack again.

When I need to paint a light area on a dark background I always use Gesso to base this in before applying the color I want in this area. This makes it so much easier to cover the dark paint.
