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.

  1. Basecoat all of frog except belly with shadow green.  Drybrush with leaf green and citrus green.

  2. Drybrush toes and around mouth with toast and citrus green putting more citrus green for the highlight on the face and toes.

  3. Basecoat the belly with daffodil.  Pounce cream mixed with white on to highlight.

  4. Paint mouth cranberry and pat on true orange to highlight.

  5. Eyes are painted daffodil with a black pupil and a white highlight.
