Apply paint with chopsticks, punches … “Pointillism technique”

When the base has dried, take some paint and dilute it with a few drops of water until the paint is more fluid.

Apply the paint with different sizes of sticks or punches. You can also use felt-tip pens but you better use them for the smaller details.

Do the same with the circle outside the tree and enjoy experimenting.

Give luminosity

With the white marker you see small points, as if the light reflected and crossed the tree.

Varnish for the final result

As we always say, it is very important that you protect the craft with acrylic varnish so that it does not get damaged.
