Painting Flowers on Cakes
I recently posted two of my cakes using the One Stroke Painting method and this book Painting Flowers on Cakes by Stephanie Weightman.
Since then I’ve had many of you messaging with more questions. What is One Stroke Painting, How do you paint on the Cakes? What do you use?
So what is one stroke painting ? OnStroke Painting I believe was developed by Donna Dewberry as a stress-free method of decorative painting. With OneStroke you can easily learn to Basecoat, share and highlight all in one stroke.
So how does is work? Here’s an example.
I load the brush with one side white and one side Fuchsia.
Now I blend the brush such that I have two colors on my brush.
Now when I paint each strokes creates a blend of three colors. The top is white and the bottom is dark while the center is a blend of the two.
Like I used on these cakes.
and of course these latest two cakes.
Back to this book Painting Flowers on Cakes
Well in this book Painting on Flowers by Stephanie Weightman. Stephanie has used the same OneStroke Painting method and really shared some gorgeous flowers that you can create. Here are some of the flowers and cakes that she has shared in this book in details.
She shows you
How to load the brush,
Which colors to use,
What medium to use,
How to angle the brush ,
Which direction to move your hands.
Once you have this book it’s all about practice and of course eventually you can create your own designs with the method and techniques she has shared.
Now I cant’ share the progress pictures but here is an example of the leaf painting using the OneStroke Painting method from the book.
Hand Painted Roses
How gorgeous is this cake and colors on the Rose Spray?
Hand Painted Violets
Hand Painted Hydranges, Hand Painted Poppies and this Gorgeous Three Tier Wedding cake with lots of flowers which she has explained in detail.
and of course there’s lots more.. But I think you get the idea.
Here is the link to both her books on Amazon if you are interested in buying. I personally highly recommend it to anyone interested in learning to paint flowers on cakes. You can get FREE international Shipping all over the world on Book Depository
Well I do hope that I have given you an understanding of what OneStroke Painting Method is. Of course this method is not for everyone it does involve practice and interest for this particular technique. But this is not the only method so if its’ not for you, you can find other ways to paint on your cakes.
You can also do painting on cakes using the watercolor techniques. I have shared with you on that in detail on my post Hand Painting on Cakes where I shared the link to the Free Online Class by Craftsy too. Check it out.
