Working on piece of plastic, trace around rim of glass. Use scissors and a craft knife to cut out a circle for template. Use roller to paint entire canvas with 2 coats of Turners Yellow, allowing to dry after each coat.

Repeat Step 2 to create 12 more rows of overlapping circles to cover canvas – 2 rows of each colour in the following order: Naples Yellow Hue mixed with Turners Yellow; Turners Yellow; Turners Yellow mixed with Yellow Deep; Yellow Deep; Yellow Deep mixed with Gold Oxide; Gold Oxide. You can adjust lightness of any of colour mixes by adding Titanium White.
