Find a small piece of scrap pine 3/4" or similar wood measuring at least 6" in length.
1) Transfer the paper pattern onto the wood and cut the ouline out.
2) Paint the base of the cut out entirely with a Lemon yellow or similar color artist acrylic paint.
3) Once the base of yellow has dried, proceed to transfer the pattern - again - over the yellow to put on the final touches of detail with the black and white paint. NOTE: the fine lines on the captain can be made with a fine line Sharpie brand pen.
