    Start on the side. Lift the first section. Place cotton underneath it. Pick up random strands and paint the color all the way down to the tips. Place cotton on top. Take the next layer and paint the next line of strands. Continue to work your way to the top.

    Continue and complete the other side & the back.

    Tip: This technique is perfect for clients who want multiple colors, because some of the pieces that you have highlighted will absorb more of the toner.
