    3. Using the No. 8 Round, paint Light Olive around eyes, nose and teeth. Fill in larger areas of skull using the Fan Glaze brush. Let dry then paint two more coats of the Light Olive on the skull, letting dry between coats. Let dry.
    4. Paint in flames with three coats of Bright Saffron, letting dry between coats. Referring to photo, brush a coat of Bright Tangerine over the flames, starting at the base of the skateboard and working the color up toward the tips of flames. Color should be heavier at the base and lighter as you move toward the tips.
    5. Paint the flames on the wheels as well. Let dry.
    6. Using the No. 4 Liner, paint a Black line around skull eyes, nose, teeth and around flames. Fill in spaces with Black. Let dry and repeat with two more coats, letting dry between each. Repeat on wheels.
    7. Use the Liner to paint a crack on skull’s head emerging from the coin slot. Refer to photo.
    8. Dip toothbrush or a stiff bristled brush into the Black and use finger to flick bristles to spatter paint over skull. Let dry.
