INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Using the quarter sponge, apply 2 thick coats of What a Yolk to the outside of your bowl.
2. After it is dry, use the same sponge(cleaned and dried) to apply 1 thick coat of Yellow Pencil over the What a Yolk.
3. After it has dried, use the toothbrush to lightly spatter Mocha Fudge over the outside of the bowl.
–Spatter by dipping the edge of the toothbrush lightly in the paint and dab the excess onto a paper towel. Then, drag your thumb over the bristles to create the spatter affect.–
4. After the outside is dry, turn your bowl over and use the quarter sponge (clean&dry) to apply 2 coats of Rawhide to the entire inside.
5. Next, use your pencil to make the slices of the grapefruit.(imagine pizza slices!), and draw a circle around the top of the bowl, 1/2 in. from the rim.
6. Using Arizona Sun and a large round brush, paint 3 heavy coats inside the slices.
7. Using What a Yolk and a large round brush(clean&dry), apply 2 coats around the inside of the rim(from the rim to 1/2 in. down to slices), and apply 1 coat of Yellow Pencil on top of the What a Yolk.(just like the outside of the bowl.)
8. Using a small round brush, outline your slices with 3 coats of Rawhide.
9. To make the seeds, use your small round brush and Rawhide to paint raindrop-shapes on the bottom of your slices. Use just the tip of your paintbrush and dip it in the Happy Trails, and make dots on the seeds.
10. Don’t forget to sign your masterpiece!
