Step 1 Wear apron Put on your apron or smock and prepare your workspace by laying down newspaper.

Step 2 Prepare paint Pour the paint onto the paper plates, using a separate plate for each color.

Step 3 Cut apple Cut the apple in half with a sharp knife. Dip the apple into one of the paints, cut side down, and use a paintbrush to spread the color evenly.
