I think this is my favorite effect. I painted the middle in an outward/upward motion with water color paint. After they dried I soaked them in water for a while to get some residue off. After they dried from the water bath they still left a little black on my fingers, but they're so pretty!
The same method of water color painting with different colors. My favorite is the lavender pinkish color to the far left. They all had that square top but I decided to trim the top to a point, I think I'm going to do that to all of them, it looks more natural to me.
