3.1. Draw the silhouette of a person with umbrella on a sheet of computer paper, cut it out, and paint it black. Alternatively, you can print out a design.
3.2. Glue the design in the middle of the lower half of the canvas.
3.3. Glue the crayons to the top edge of the canvas with a hot glue gun.
3.4. Take a bowl which is roughly the same diameter as the silhouette umbrella and cover the design. Secure the bowl with masking tape, making sure that the edge of the bowl lies on the outline of the umbrella. Cover the rest of the silhouette below the bowl with masking tape.
