1. I gave students paper with the outline of a basket shape already in place so they could concentrate on the coloring. They made curved lines to divide up the basket, and then drew different patterns within each. Crayola Construction Paper Crayons were used to color all of it, pressing hard to make a very waxy covering. Regular crayons would work fine too.

3. Watercolor paint is applied over the entire page, which will help smooth it out.
