I thought I could go through the steps I take to draw my dandelions that so many of you love. Each photo below includes some information on how I achieved each step. There are many photos online to use as a reference photo. Simply google dandelions and switch to the image tab.
I used artist acrylics (Basic, Liquitex, Windsor & Newton, Golden). I believe that the craft acrylics should work just as well, as long as they are thick enough not to bleed into the fabric. I did caution you to paint 2 coats of gesso on the canvas to ensure a better seal and reduce bleeding. My paints were thick but any excess water, might soak into the adjoining areas blurring your clean lines. Therefore, don't add water to your acrylics, use them straight from the bottle, jar, or tube. I was able to touch up any bleeding with more gesso and a fine 000 brush. It was extremely effective.
