Reworking a canvas using Art Anthology paints and sprays for the first time

Hello All!

YouTube Link to see the demonstration :-)  https://youtu.be/1uKdB6G9buc

About a year ago, I had created 4 6x12 canvases using Rigid
Wrap Plaster Cloth to cover the canvas as well as to create
the flowers, stems, and leaves.  I put a base coat of paint on
them and set them aside because I was not happy with the
direction they were going.
A few days ago, my friend Robin Redd of ReddRobinStudios,
who is also on the design team for Art Anthology, sent me
some of her discontinued paint samples to play around with.
I knew what I wanted to use them on.......
