I painted this board with a lively green acrylic paint.
Thereafter I stenciled the larger leaves with white puff paint, using a size J stencil.
After washing my stencil I used a smaller size F leaf stencil and made a few more leaves.
When the puff paint was dry, I used a hairdryer to heat the paint. With sufficient heat the paint puffs up to create texture.
The green was a bit much for me so I thought of painting the whole surface white again (I am not much of a planner!).
I did that by lightly painting over the whole surface again with white chalk paint with a dry brush, allowing the green to shine through around the leaves.
I then worked some wax into the texture, especially around the edges of the leaves.
When the wax was dry I sanded some of the darker areas off again.
