|Step 1: Start with a flat, angled brush about half inch width for making the stripes. Red will be the first color then a white stripe below.
Use a slight sweeping motion while applying the stripes to give your banner movement.
|Step 2: With the same brush make a small blue square to the right of these stripes.|
|Step 3: Starting beneath the blue square add one final red stripe.|
|Step 4: Finish your banner with a simple black line running vertical long your banner to represent a flagpole.|
|Step 5: A fine tip, round brush will work well for your fireworks. Make simple arched lines of red, white and blue adding few hash marks at the end of each brush stroke to simulate the burst.|
|Step 6: I chose to accent only the red burst with glitter for my panting, but you can of course use more if you wish.|
Now your 4th of July paint is ready for the show, enjoy!
