Peppermint Stix I painted Lonna’s Peppermint Stix pattern on a old wood tray I found at a thrift shop. Lonna includes in her e-pattern a list of palette colors, suggested brushes to use and any additional supplies needed to complete the project . Lonna’s PDF E-Patterns are very well written with easy to follow step by step directions. The main elements of this particular pattern were peppermint stix and pine greens. The directions included numerous photos showing the “layering” process of the paint values for the pines as you painted them to create depth. Lonna provides the same detailed instructions and photos to paint the peppermint stix and peppermints. The line drawings are clear and easy to use. The pattern also includes steps to complete your project such as varnishing techniques. A novice painter may feel challenged to paint this project but I think anyone could paint this project with expert results given how well written this pattern is. Thank you Lonna! It has been a pleasure to paint with you!
