August is here and so are the tastiest watermelons!
Want to paint some? Just grab a potato and some paint. I used my favorite paint- watercolors, but this would work with acrylics too.
watercolor or acrylic paint
jar of water
Step 1: Cut your potato in half width wise, the in half length wise. The end of the potato should be a semi-circle. You can also cut that piece in half to create a triangle shape on the end.
Step 2: Spread pink paint over the cut end with your brush and quickly press down to your paper. Hold for a couple of seconds and remove. You now have the flesh part of your watermelon slice painted!
Step 3: Paint around with bottom edge of the pink semi-circles or triangles with green paint to create the rind. You can vary the shades of green to make it interesting :)
Then, when that paint is dry, lightly paint in some seeds with little black dots. This part is optional. I think I like them with and without the seeds. So you choose!
