Yellow Pink/Yellow Orange Gradient

Published on 14th October 2011

To get the lower layers I sectioned the dyed layer to the front, and clipped it in place.


Then I applied the pink. I used Directions Flamingo Pink. Again I layered it a little over the top of the yellow, and then all the way down to the tips.
