Let's Get Started! Step 1. Set out different colors of paint on paint trays or paper plates.
Step 2. Take a plastic bottle and dip the bottom into one of the colors of paint. Now, press the bottom of the bottle onto the paper. Repeat using different colors and/or different sizes of water bottles.
Step 3. Using a paint brush, paint a stem onto each of the flowers.
Step 4. Paint additional details into your painting, such as grass, trees, clouds or more!
