Hawaiian Flowers: Procreate Stamp Tutorial. Using stamps from my Tropical Vibes Lettering Kit, I’ll show you how to make Plumeria and Hibiscus flowers.
Hawaiian Flowers: Procreate Stamp Tutorial
Whenever I release a new Procreate Brush set, I like to do a few free tutorials on the blog to show you how to use them. Today, I’ll be teaching you how I use the stamps from my new Tropical Vibes Procreate Lettering Kit.
We’ll be focusing on the florals today since the leaves are pretty self-explanatory. The flowers are a bit more detailed. There are two main types: Plumeria and Hibiscus. Below, you can see that the floral stamps are Stamps 16-20. Stamps 16 and 17 are Hibiscus, and stamps 18-20 are Plumeria.
Before we get into each flower in detail, let’s go over the three main steps I follow every time I use stamps.
Using Procreate Stamps: The Basic Steps
- Stamp a flower or leaf in a single color on its own layer.
- Tap the layer and then tap Alpha-Lock. Use the Tropical Gradient Brush in various colors to add dimension. I usually use 2-3 colors during this step. Don’t overthink it. This step should be quick and easy!
- Now, use the Tropical Monoline Brush and Tropical Calligraphy Brush at a minimal size to add the fine details. Depending on the floral, I toggle Alpha-Lock on and off as needed during this step.
Swipe left on the layer to duplicate your flower so you can use it several times withinin the same piece.
Duplicating the same florals and leaves makes fast work of a piece that looks super intricate.
In the example below, re-used the same leaves and florals numerous times, but by adjusting the size and angle, the same leaves and florals look unique.
A NOTE ON VIDEO TUTORIALS
Would you like to see a video tutorial for the flowers, or do you feel that the visuals in this post are sufficient? (Scroll down for the step-by-step graphics for each stamp.)
Initially, I planned to do videos, but with the whole husband and kids all home, all the time due to the Coronavirus, I’m having a hard time getting any peace in quiet in which to film a video lesson.
If you do want one, let me know in the post comments. I’ll add one as soon as I can, but I didn’t want to delay the blog post knowing we have several more weeks of the “Stay at Home” order ahead of us.
For now, I’ll go into more detail on each of the two Hawaiian Flowers and their various styles.
Hawaiian Flowers: USING THE HIBISCUS STAMPS
Stamps 16 and 17 are Hibiscus Florals. I pulled a few photos from Unplash that you can use for reference. Study the Hibiscus Photos below, and then I’ll walk you through the steps for this flower using each stamp.
This note applies to all stamps. When you’re adding details in Step Three, use various shades of your primary flower color to define the petals. I used pink in the first example. Using black or white to define the petals results in a less-realistic look than sticking to the shades of pink. This is where looking at real photos helps you decide on what colors to use for the details.
Hibiscus Style One: Stamp 16
Hibiscus Style Two: Stamp 17
Hawaiian Flowers: USING THE PLUMERIA STAMPS
As I mentioned earlier, stamps 18-20 are Plumeria. I pulled a few more photos from Unplash that you can use for reference. Study the Plumeria photos below and then check out the step-by-step graphics.
Plumeria Style One: Stamp 18
This stamp is a trio of Plumeria flowers.
Plumeria Style One: Stamp 19-20
While their petal formation is different for variation, the steps for both of these stamps, so I’m just showing you Stamp 19 in the graphic below
