You should have two thin layers drawn towards the outer edge of the coaster. Watermelons come in many different shapes and sizes so don’t worry about the lines being perfect. This is just to give you an idea as to where you will be painting the skin (green) and flesh of the melon (white). You can always straighten the lines up with paint as you go.
The trickiest part is painting the seeds. The easiest method to do so is to use a q-tip and a thin paintbrush. First, dab the end of the q-tip into the black paint and make dots in the center of the melon. Once dots are placed, use the thin paintbrush to drag out the paint and create a tapered look, forming a seed. Once complete, seal the paint with an acrylic spray or finish.
