To Color the Pirate hat, use the Black pen and infuse with toning medium for 15-20 seconds. Use the same fuse time for the face, but use the Bisque Chameleon Pen. Start coloring from the upper left corner towards the bottom right (diagonally).

To color the chest you will use the Hot Cocoa Pen (the edges), the bark (the base of the chest) and Warm Sunset (the gold inside the chest). For the bottom and larger area of the chest you will need to infuse your Bark pen for 15 seconds and color in same manner as the face and the hat of the pirate. The cover of the chest: infuse your Bark pen for 5-7 seconds and 3 seconds (for the smaller side). For the edges infuse your Hot Cocoa pen with toning medium for 3 seconds for each part. To color the gold items inside of the chest, infuse your Warm Sunset pen for 10-15 seconds and color.
To color the parrot’s beak, belt buckle, belt and the buckles of the shoes you will infuse the pens with toning medium for about 2 seconds. The colors used are the following: parrots beak: Seville Orange, belt buckle: Black, belt: Royal Blue, shoe buckles: Crimson red.
