Step 1. Pull out your favorite One stroke split cake. I've used Cupcake Arty cake given to me by SillyFarm.com
Step 2. Using a #10 Filbert load the darker side of your splitcake in order to richer color. Make a circle using the flat part of your brush.
Step 3. Using the tip of the brush start at the center of your circle and as you come out flatten your brush down to make the sides of the bows. Make a 3 on the right side and and E on the left side.
Step 4. Color in your bow
Step 5. Make the tails of your bow
Step 6. Using a #1 script liner load your brush with black and outline your bow with a thin line.
Step 7. Using a #3 round load your brush in grey and add some shading. While the paint is still wet take a 1/4 DM Stippler dry brush and drag the grey paint to blend it out.
Step 8. Load the lighter colors from your split cake onto your filbert and add some highlights. Take more of the darker paint and blend so there are no definite lines.
TADA you are finished with your beautiful bow.
You can always simplify this by leaving off the tails and forgoing the shading portion if you are in a rush. Makes a great base bow for tons of designs including Minnie Mouse.
I hope you are able to use this on your next event.
