1. Apply the base color.

  

2. Using hot pink and purple One Stroke acrylic paint, apply butterfly wings using the One Stroke technique (dip one side of the brush in the hot pink and other side of the brush in the purple; “scrub” your double-loaded brush back and forth to blend the colors).

  

3. Using black acrylic paint, outline the wings, draw thin lines in the wings to add definition, and add the body and antennae.

  

4. Using white acrylic paint, add tiny dots to the outer edge of the wing. Let dry and apply clear top coat.
