  • Any type of clear oil - olive, almond. cooking, body oil.
  • Cookie sheet to help contain any mess from the oil and easy clean up.
  • Cotton balls
  • Your Favorite Do A Dot Art! marker colors!

Add oil to the cotton ball and gently rub the cotton ball over the front of the printable (ink side up). Be sure to cover the full page with the oil to get the full effect.
