1. Using low tack tape, tape off a stripe design on two edges of the drop-cloth.  Using a medium paintbrush, paint the stripe design with the pumpkin paint.  Allow to dry and repeat on the other sides with baby pink paint.

2. Tape of a large “frame” square in the center of the drop-cloth, paint one side of of the square with calypso sky and the other side melted chocolate. Allow to dry.
