It is so much fun to offer your guests an assortment of teas from a beautifully decorated chest. The decoration is florals that have been interpreted with lightly textured strokes on the outside and softer, more dry brushed flowers on the inside for a total decorative presentation with great interest.

*You may prefer your Taklon brushes for the stroke florals. The main difference between the Taklon and Sableon brushes is that the Sableon brushes have a firmer touch and may help you control your textured effects more easily.For soft, dry-brushed flowers, the bristle blenders are fun. But if you have some old filberts, you may like to try them.
