One way is to fill them each with whatever contrasting colors you like to use for flowers in addition to white. So, you load your brush with white paint, then swirl the tip on the color of your choosing in these mini pots. This helps to keep your larger kit clean, avoiding the white swirls on top of your colors from making double dip flower petals!
The other way you can use these is to fill them with both the white and color, enabling you to load your brush with both at the same time. I heard about this idea during a face painting jam and had to give it a try! Here are some photos of my attempt...
|Press your colored paint in the bottom half or third of the pot.|
|Fil the rest of the pot with white.|
|Using the end of your brush handle, make a hole in the center. Reach down just through the white paint and slightly into the colored paint area.|
|Now, wet and load your brush in the hole, loading white on the brush with your color on the tip!|
|Press your double dip petals!|
