This size is good for speed, drying time, need for detail and brush control, it is also good for only needing a small amount of paint.
  3. 3. Resources • 2 x 4mm paintbrush and 1 fine tip paintbrush per student. 1 brush for white & yellow, 1 brush for blues and the fine tip for black & dark blue. • Acrylic paint - white, blue, yellow and black. Thicker paint (especially for white is best). No water to be added to thin paints. • A5 or A6 sized card for each student.
  4. 4. Demonstrate preparation QuickTime™ and a decompressor are needed to see this picture. • Black, blue, yellow and white are the base colours. • Blend white with 3 or the blues to achieve 3 different blue tones.
