INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Paint the underside of the alligator with Sun Yellow Crafter's Acrylic paint. Let it dry.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Paint the body and head of the alligator with Holiday Green Crafter's Acrylic paint. After the first application has dried, add a second layer of paint.
  3. Paint the mouth of the alligator with Christmas Red Crafter's Acrylic paint. When that is dry, use a fine tip brush to add sharp, white teeth to the alligator's mouth.
    Step 2 Example
  4. For the snake, paint each "stripe" on the snake's body with a black, yellow, red pattern. I painted one color at a time.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Paint the dinosaur with two layers of Dark Turquoise Crafter's Acrylic paint. Let it dry. Use a small foam pouncer to add Purple Passion polka dots all over the dinosaur's body. Dip the pouncer in the paint, blot the excess off on a paper towel, then dab the pouncer on the surface to make dots.
    Step 4 Example

HELPFUL HINTS

Slide a photograph into a wood slot to display your favorite images! You can bend the animal figures slightly to "pinch" the photos in place.
