    • water container
    • palette or plastic plate
    • paper towels
    • #2 round brush
    • 3/4" flat brush
    • metal-footed bowl
    • small Styrofoam balls
    • confetti



    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    1. Use a 3/4" flat brush to paint a metal bowl with Black Gloss Enamels.
    2. Use a #2 round brush to paint different shapes and sizes of irises on the Styrofoam balls: Burnt Umber, Jack-O'-Lantern Orange, Festive Green, Citron Green, Ocean Blue, and Purple Cow. Outline the eyes and add different-sized pupils with Lamp Black and the #2 round brush.
    3. With the same brush, make eyes bloodshot by adding lines of True Red.
    4. Fill the bowl halfway with confetti and arrange the eyes randomly so they are looking in differing directions
