Tag One Stoke Split Cake – Snake


1.Use the split cake and the 1 inch brush or 3/4 inch brush by taking a moment and really working the brush over the paint. If you want to know how to load a one stoke, then refer to the One Stoke & Split Cake Tutorial.  Starting with the flat brush, start at the upper corner of the eye. Make two “u” shapes in a row, then twist brush to make a point. Make sure the darker color in the one stoke cake is on the outer edge.


2. Flip the brush over, and repeat on the other side.


3. Paint another leaf on the cheek under the eye.


4.  Using the red paint and a round brush, paint three circles overlapping each other in between the leaves.


5. Using a small round brush, outline the design with black.


6. Add some yellow swirls around the ivy.


7. Finally, add white to the design. Outline the swirls and inside the leaves. Also add some shine to the berries as well.

A pretty design for the Holidays. Adding glitter to this would so pretty especially under Christmas lights!  I recommend these glitters. they are translucent so they do not cover up the design but enhance it.
