Talk about a versatile piece, this frog can take on several roles in your home. I personally think he works best as a place to put your kitchen scrubber. You could also use him for a small flower pot for a succulent or even an ornamental birdhouse. Got a kid who needs to learn about saving? Why not convert him into a bank? Whatever you decide to do with him, this frog is an easy piece to paint and could be your new friend.

Note:  If you plan on using this piece outside mix your paint half and half with weather it.

 
  • Basecoat all of frog except belly with shadow green.  Drybrush with leaf green and citrus green.
  • Drybrush toes and around mouth with toast and citrus green putting more citrus green for the highlight on the face and toes.
  • Basecoat the belly with daffodil.  Pounce cream mixed with white on to highlight.
  • Paint mouth cranberry and pat on true orange to highlight.
  • Eyes are painted daffodil with a black pupil and a white highlight.
