Woven Placemat Tray

Designer: Lindsay Marr



  1. Sketch lines on for the design (can use a ruler, free hand or tape).
    1. Sample: 1cm lines
  2. Use SC-79 It’s Sage, SC-58 501 Blues, SC-91 Seabreeze, SC-45 My Blue Heaven and SC-16 Cotton Tail for each section. Tinted SC-58 501 Blues and SC-79 It’s Sage with SC-16 Cotton Tail to have a lighter shade of it for color variations.
  3. Use water to dilute the colors so it will not require 3 coats and will be simple to paint.
  4. Use a CB-310 #10 Flat Shader to fill in color in each section.
    1. Sample: used a brush that is the same width as the sections to fill in the color with one or two brushstrokes.
  5. Once all the lines are painted, use SC-16 Cotton Tail to mimic the stitches to hold each section together with a CB-200 #0 Detail brush.
  6. Finish by painting 1 coat of Milk Glass White on the top of the piece, and 3 coats on the back with a CB-618 #8 Soft Fan brush.
