A Cup of Water

Step 1: Draw your super cute acorn including facial features. Be sure to watch the video as we walk you through this process step by step. 


Step 2: Feel free to add some berries or leaves to the outside If you decide to add a fall border.

Step 3: Outline with your black permanent marker.

Step 4: Use your watercolor pencils to lightly color in your acorn, leaves, eyes, and everywhere you want color. Just use a little bit of the watercolor pencil, you don’t have to fill this in solid. A little bit goes a long way once we add the water.

Step 5: After you’re done with your watercolor pencils, dip your paint brush into your water, just a little bit and brush it over your watercolor pencil areas. You’ll see your pencil color turn into watercolor. You’ll start to get a really cool effect.

Be sure to watch the video for a step by step tutorial on how to do this.
