    1. Apple: Sketch the apple design onto the rock. Using Lipstick for the apple and Turf Green for the stem, paint the colors in with a small paintbrush, using the liner brush when necessary.
    2. Instruction #1
    3. Apple: When the desired coverage is reached (it may take more than one coat) and the paint has dried, outline the apple and add shading using the fine point permanent marker. Using Cotton Ball and the liner brush, add highlights. (See photo.)

    6. Instruction #3
    7. Avocado: Mix a small amount of Turf Green into a larger amount of Canary to make a light yellow green. Paint the avocado, leaving a small outline of the dark green visible using the small paintbrush. (Save any leftover paint to use on the pea pod and watermelon rocks.)

    9. Avocado: Use Black Tie to paint in the avocado seed with the small paintbrush.
