Use sponge brush and apply to both front and back of sunflower. I use a small plastic butter bowl, place some crumpled newspaper in the bowl almost to the top. Lay the sunflower on top of the newspaper so the petals are bent up higher than the flower center. Let dry.Cut flower center out of black felt. Hot glue flower center to middle of sunflower. Hot glue Annie’s face into the middle of the sunflower. Using dry brush method and a stencil brush, blush Annie’s cheeks with barn red acrylic paint.
