    • pencil
    • umbrella

    When the first layer of paint has dried, add a second one. Two applications is enough to achieve an even finish.

    I used cylindrical objects of various sizes to lightly pencil in my design for the faces. Two different sized drinking glasses were used to draw the frog's eyes. The end of a paint bottle was used to draw the cheeks. A ruler was used to make the lines for the frog's mouth, and a small bowl was used

    1. Lightly draw the face design onto outside of the umbrella.
