For this piece I used a palette knife and toothpick to apply the paint instead of brushes. And this time I tried yet another white: Winsor & Newton Flake White Hue. It's definitely easier to work with than their Foundation White but it is much oilier than I'd like. Next time I may mix equal amounts of the two and hopefully reach a happy medium.
