  4. Load Licorice on the handle end of the No. 2 Script Liner Brush; paint a dot next to the Engine Red body to create the ladybug head.
  5. Thin Licorice paint; using the No. 2 Script Liner Brush, paint a line down the center of the body of each ladybug and paint the antennae. Add dots of Licorice to the ends of the antennae using the handle end of the No. 2 Script Liner Brush.
