Instructions
1. Cut a piece of foam into a semicircle.
2. Cut out a chunk of the foam along the straight edge of the semicircle with the precision knife. The chunk should resemble a bite mark.
3. Pour pink paint in an even layer onto a plate. If needed, use a foam brush to spread out the paint across the plate.
4. Dip the foam semicircle into the pink paint. Once the foam is coated in paint, press it onto the canvas.
5. Paint any empty patches that remain with a foam brush. Allow the paint to dry.
6. Paint a stripe of green paint around the outside circular edge of the pink semicircle. Leave a small space of white between the pink and green paint to mimic the white portion of a watermelon rind. Allow the paint to dry.
7. Draw teardrop shapes onto the pink portion of the watermelon with a black permanent marker to create seeds.
