Geez painting zigzags is hard!  Who knew!  I started with a single coat base (because you can!) of American Apparel Poppy, then used the Art Club Stripers in Yellow, Mochalotta and Azure to paint in some zigzags near the tips and learned something valuable: you still gotta move fast when you’re doing this stuff, or don’t stick with one color for too long so it doesn’t start getting all clumpy on the striper brush.  And maybe use a real brush instead of the striper brush for zigzags because this was just downright tricky and puffy.  Ya try and learn!
