#2 and #4 Round Brush

A dauber or sponge

and some water/ spray bottle


#1: Wet your dauber or Sponge and motion like you would if you have a one stroke brush back and forth.


#2: lightly dab some on yourself or on a piece of fabric before starting for excess paint, then gently dab on desired area making a circle or (square is fine for a sponge- there are square turtles!)


#3: Add the Outline of the shell as well as some detail to the design of the shell if you’d like


#4: Now make your head of the turtle with a tear drop motion and a straight line for the neck.


#5: Now add the Fins with a flick of the wrist! as shown below.
