4. Dab the sponge with the turquoise paint. Sponge-paint the lantern, except the base portion and 2" from the top.
Step-5

5. Before the turquoise paint dries, quickly dab the sponge paint with the royal blue paint and use it to color around the base of the lantern. This will lead to the mixing of the turquoise and the blue paint to form a bronzy color.
