NOTES: When the first layer of paint has dried, add a second one. Two applications is enough to achieve an even finish. I used cylindrical objects of various sizes to lightly pencil in my design for the faces. Two different sized drinking glasses were used to draw the frog's eyes. The end of a paint bottle was used to draw the cheeks. A ruler was used to make the lines for the frog's mouth, and a small bowl was used

  1. Lightly draw the face design onto outside of the umbrella.
  2. Use Snow White to fill in the appropriate areas of the eyes, with an angled brush to make clean, curved lines. 
  3. Paint the cheeks with Carousel Pink.
  4. Use Lamp Black to fill in the mouths and parts of the eyes.
  5. Paint the frog umbrella with Sour Apple. Paint around the facial features.
