  1. Remove the laces from the shoes and tape off sections of the shoes that do not require paint.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Mix (4) parts Green with (1) part Blue to create the background. Paint both sides with this color. Blue can be used to shade the edges and use Yellow for highlights in the middle.

Paint the chick in Fuchsia using Blue and Purple to accent and shade. Paint the chick's boots Blue. Paint the crown; signs ("cheap" and "help"); and worm in Orange, highlighting with Yellow and outlining with Black.
