To create the different sections for the erasers, I used a large index card and folded it around the top section of each leg. I then traced a line underneath with a pencil so I knew where to paint pink.
You can use any yellow paint and a small paintbrush from your home improvement store. I bought a small bucket off the shelf that did not need mixing.
I measured an inch and traced all around each leg for the ferrules (metal part of the pencil). You can use gray Duct Tape too. Since I already have gray paint at home, I thought I would use paint instead. TIP: It’s OK if it’s not perfect!!!! You can go back and retouch the imperfections later. Repeat after me, I WILL NOT STRESS! 🙂
You can also use a black Sharpie to trace the edge of the wood areas of the pencils. The chalk marker that I used is the Bistro Chalk Marker.
