Load your filbert brush with your Global Fun Stroke Amazon. keeping the darker color on the outside, begin painting your chameleon’s body. I always start with the chameleon’s head and work my way down to the body and tail from there. Don’t forget to add his little legs too!

At this point, you can use the optional Wolfe Black for the pupil and Wolfe White to highlight the eye. If you are short on time, you can just use the Dark Green for the pupil.
