Step 3: Face and arms

You give the head a nose and a chin. With a flourish you draw the back with the help of the pencil. The witch holds her arms out wide. She grips the broomstick with her hands. Draw hands, elbows and shoulders as small circles. Connect them with strokes to get the course of the arms.

Step 6: Permanent contours

Use the pencil to trace the contours that will remain visible later. You make the hat, the scarf, the dress, the shoes and the face finer. The broom gets more structure. You also paint the arms, legs and broomstick in their natural shape and width.

IMPORTANT: do not paint the middle part of the broomstick with the permanent marker - otherwise we would not be able to erase this part.

Step 8: Coloring

Color the witch. On the template the witch wears gray hair, a dark gray robe, red-pink striped socks and a purple scarf. The skin is greenish. You are welcome to adjust the color of your picture to your individual ideas.
