Lesson 3


  1. Using torn painter's tape, create an animal design. Remember to look at the INSIDE SHAPE. 
  2. Don't forget an eye or two!
  3. Take your oil pastels and make stripes of different colors. Stay in the tape "lines."
  4. Use a paper towel to smear the colors to make them softer.
  5. Carefully lift off the tape.
  6. Add details if desired.
