We took the guesswork out of watercolor and created this easy and fun kit. Follow along with the totally free video tutorial courtesy of our watercolor artist Sarah Cray.

  • Graphite paper
  • Printed outline
  • Reference card
  • Printed instructions
  • Enough Dandelion Paint Co. paint to complete the project at least twice.

    Fantastic First Time

    I loved the Sunflower tutorial so very much as my first entry into the world of Watercolor. I loved having the online tutorial that I could pause and rewind at my own speed. I loved how clear and encouraging Sarah is throughout the entire video and funny as well! I had such fun getting into the zone of learning and working with watercolor. I am really happy I took a chance with online learning. I had been hesitant for so long to learn anything online.

    Maybe not a good first-time project

    Even though this was probably too hard for someone like me - doing their first ever painting project - I thoroughly enjoyed this tutorial. The sunflower is set sideways, which makes it difficult to paint without more experience. It was explained during the tutorial, but I just could never grasp what I was supposed to do to make it look anything other than flat. I do absolutely love my leaves. So I felt like I learned something there. Unlike the other reviewer, I thought the tutorial took a long time. However, in the end, my painting looks just like a sunflower. And I'm proud of myself for trying. I should probably try a traceable project before I give this the second try.

    Not good results

    This is the second kit I've tried - the first one was Jill the Squirrel which was fun and came out OK for a non-artist. I tried painting this flower 4 times and the results were not so good. For me the tutorial goes too fast and lacks details about how to do what she's portraying. For example, show more closeups of the petals and describe what we're trying to achieve with the strokes. Adding additional colors to petals should be better explained. I feel like I wound up with too much paint on the paper but the directions were to fill in the empty spaces between the petals. All my pictures came out looking like they were painted by a 4th grader. (OK, maybe I have the talent of a 4th grader... but was hoping to improve.)

    Why Brushes Are Sold Separately

    Long story short— if every kit came with a brush, you'd have way more brushes than you need!

    The option to purchase brushes on an as-needed basis sets you up to create the brush collection that best suits YOU!
     Brushes do wear out, so we recommend replacing your brush every 4-6 months or when the tip isn't holding a point fine enough to your liking. 
    If you're new, here's a few brushes we recommend starting with.
