It may be winter here but we are dreaming of beautiful sunflowers. For this project, you can use either of our 12″ x 8″ Long Grain Real Wood 1/16″ Panels or Real Wood 1/8″ Panels. We chose to use our Walnut 1/16″ Panel. We did nothing to prep or treat the wood panel prior to painting. Our artist sat down and began painting with acrylic paints. Within a half hour, she had this complete. Simply beautiful.
