    • water container
    • palette or plastic plate
    • paper towels
    • black fine point marker
    • small wooden crate
    • sponge brushes, regular and round

    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    1. Paint the inside of crate Calypso Blue. (Add another coat if needed to make the color opaque.)
    2. Paint the outside of the crate Cadmium Yellow.
    3. Using the round sponge brush, stamp circles around the crate by alternating Dragon Fruit and Jack-O'-Lantern Orange.
    4. Using smaller detail brushes, add Margarita and Calypso Blue for leaves.
    5. After all is dry, add some line detail with a black fine point marker. Roughly trace around the circles to make apple shapes. Add a stem and leaves to each apple.
