- Paint brush
- Cup of water
- Paper towels
- Paper plate
Once you have your materials laid out, it is time to start painting. You may want to lay out paper towels or newspaper to keep your workspace clean.
Every time you add a layer of paint, let it dry completely before adding another color. Wet paint will mix with wet paint and you may end up with a color you were not trying to achieve.
To get even more creative, try mixing your colors to find a new shade to make your figure pop. The Take & Make kit provided you with the most basic primary colors. However, you might want to mix those colors for a more desired color, like purple or orange.
Here is a video where painter Vered Thalmeier shows you the best way to mix paints. You can use a paper plate to mix your colors together.
