    Step 0 Example
  2. Use a flat brush to basecoat the ruler and a pencil in Lavender; one pencil in Vivid Violet and another in Desert Turquoise; the calculator in Glorious Gold (Metallic); and the pineapples on the folder in yellow. Use a flat brush with green and yellow at the same time to paint the leaves and cacti. Use a round brush with green for the tops of the pineapples. Use a round brush for the black triangles.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Use a round brush to paint pineapples on the ruler the same way as the folder. Use a black marker to go over the ruler numbers. Use scissors to cut out the quotes and glue the down with E6000 Glue. Use a round brush with Black to add details on the folder, to outline the quotes, and to add triangles to the calculator.
