With the weather warming it up it's the perfect time to look to plants for inspiration. All sorts of customs can get spring ready, from handbags to roller skates it's just about finding that perfect combination of floral and foliage. Here are some of the latest floral customs and the Angelus Paints needed to recreate them.
The delicate and detailed nature of this white and green floral design really benefits from hand-painting on this custom bag by @artjin1214. Delicate shading in bone gives each white flower dimension, while a variety of custom mixed greens give the leaves that three dimensional look.
It's not just flowers that are in season, berries are too. Angelus Direct sponsored artist @sneakerqueenscustoms uses these all white roller skates as a canvas for an arrangement of blossoming strawberries in red, green, yellow and white for a fresh, springtime ready custom. Hand painting like this calls for Angelus Mirco Detail Paint Brushes to get every paint stroke just right.

Nobody did florals like the Northern Renaissance painters, as this tribute to Jan van Huysum's work proves. The design on this custom bag by @lilya_custom is based on the painting "Flowers in a Terracotta Vase". A colorful palette in blues, reds, whites and yellows along with the incredibly detailed design turn this purse into a richly covered canvas any old master would approve of.
Strawberries aren't the only fruit in season. This cherry covered card holder by @tonton.custom is another sweet fruit themed custom in red and green. A simple color palette and precise shading give these cherries realistic look, while a set of initials give this wallet that custom touch.
