Press a few times on palette to distribute paint. Swirl pouncer edge in small amount of Calypso Blue. Press on palette. Position pouncer on globe surface and press. Repeat until there are snow people around globe. (NOTE: make sure to leave space between each for arms.)

Mix small amount of True Red and Festive Green to make brown. Use liner brush and mix to paint stick arms in varying positions.
