Cut your celery stalk off leaving a base about 3 to 4 inches tall.
Choose paint colors that blend well to make flowers. Try 3 to 4 different shades and apply to the cut end of your celery using brushes to add small amounts of paint, alternating colors that look like petals visually.
Use scrap paper to pre-stamp your celery for the look you want before adding to your object. This is done to see if you like a heavy look or a muted look.
This is a stamping technique done with a veggie and left overs can be eaten after your hard work!
I love craft painting with stencils and stamps. And not all stamps have to be expensive. I have seen them carved out of erasers, foam rubber, even potatoes. How about celery? If cut near the root end and used as a stamp, celery leaves a surprisingly lovely "rose" imprint- let me show you how!
