 1. Starting with the light green face paint, and the medium round brush, start to paint a triangle shape where you want the top of the tree to go.  Then continue down on each side to create ridges. Make sure to go a little wider each time.


2. Next fill in with the metallic green paint. Do not go all the way to the edge, leave a little bit of the light green so that it looks like it’s glowing. You can even blend the colors together to add details and highlighting to the branches.
