  3. Use a #3 round brush with Summer Sky Blue for the bird's body; Cloud White for hair, eye, and belly; Hydrangea Blue for beak and back wing; and Wrought Iron Black for eye pupils on birds on front and right side
  4. Use the same brush and Hydrangea Blue for the squiggle on front, entrance, and houses on the left side.
  5. Use a #3 round brush and Cloud White for the windows on the houses.
  6. On the left side, use the same brush with Summer Sky Blue for bird and grass; Cloud White for eyes and shell; Blue Bahama for "Tweet" and egg highlights; and Wrought Iron Black for eyes.
  7. On the back, use a #3 round brush with Summer Sky Blue to fill in the bird. Use same brush and Hydrangea Blue to fill in the words. Outline the words with Summer Sky Blue.
