Project Woodenware:

12 inch double beaded plate (usually available at or Vesterheim Museum’s Folkart store sometimes has them as well. You can also use a single outside beaded plate. Make sure the internal diameter is about 8 inches. Paint this a teal or turquoise color. I used dark Victorian teal by Delta Ceramcoat. You can also background the plate in black (some of the colors will have to be adjusted).

I would also paint a piece of poster board or cardboard for practice if you have not painted in the Os-style before
