    2. Instruction #1
    3. Using a #8 round brush, paint the head, ears, and feet in Almond. Use the #8 round brush with Bittersweet to outline the face, ears, and feet and then to blend the outline with Battleship.
    4. Instruction #2
    5. Using a #8 round brush, paint a thin stripe in the middle of the stripes, Neon Yellow over Chick and Neon Green over Soft Jade. Using a #8 round brush, paint the eyes, nose, and highlight the face, ears, and feet in Bittersweet. Use a plastic fork to slide Bittersweet to make the porcupine's needles.
    6. Instruction #3
    7. Using a plastic fork, continue adding quills to porcupine in Neon Orange and Bittersweet. Use a #8 round brush and Bittersweet to paint the eyes and nose and to loosely outline the face, ear, and feet. Use a #10 flat brush and Bittersweet to paint the sides and dry-brush the perimeter of the canvas.
