Watercolour – Don’t forget the boos!

Step 1

Get ready for an interesting one because after you’ve grabbed the kit, it’s baking time. Heat the oven to 200°C. Tear some A4 watercolour paper into four A6 squares. Soak them in coffee and stick them in the oven for a few minutes. Voila – ancient paper!

Step 2

Draw two stripes down either side of the paper. Then, starting with the eyes and nose holes, draw a skull. Underneath the skull, scribble your lettering. It helps to start with the middle letters of each word and work outwards. You can write anything but we went for ‘Human Brew’.

Step 3

Take some black paint and outline your skull. Then go over your lettering in blood red and fill your stripes with purple. Let things dry, then fire up the glue gun. Apply some glue to your plonk bottle and press the label on. Drink up, bae.
