  3. Trace and transfer the hand pattern onto the lavender Fun Foam and the shoe pattern on the brown Fun Foam. Cut out the shapes with scissors.
  4. Use a 3/4" flat brush and Flesh Tone to paint the head and Snow White for the collar.
  5. Load the tips of a scruffy brush with Melon. Scrub almost all of paint off onto paper towel. Gently swirl the brush bristle tips in a circular motion on the face for cheeks.
