Children’s Craft Paper Dragonfly : Paper Dragonfly Craft: Painting Body

The legs are in place and we're ready to startadding some paint to the body.

I'm going to use a gel-like tempera glitter paint, it'snice and light.

You could also use an acrylic paint for this if you like, and you coulddo more of a design on this.

But what I'm going to do is I'm just going to dash andgive it some color.

You can mix the colors.

The fun thing about using this tempera glitteris that you really don't need to wash your brush in between if you're using similar colorsbecause they blend really nicely and it kind of has a translucent look to it.

So we cantake it all the way down, changing up the color, adding some others, we can also paintthe head.

But we'll take it down and we'll change it up a little bit as we go, givinghim the affect of maybe reflections from the pond.

And just lightly painting as we go along,we want to make sure we don't add too much paint, otherwise it's going to weigh our loopsdown.
