When they painted themselves, they usually daubed on the color with • bit of clotfa or fibre. Bat very often their pictures called for clear lines and patches of color. To apply such color, the Indians made a number of different kinds of broshes. At upper left is aw simplest one, a poiated twig or stick. Very often, as in the next sketch, a twig was pounded so that th« soft material was removed, leaving tfce tonf fibers. The outer fiber* then could be trimmed down if t point was needed as SMQ in the third brush. In the west, pieces of fee yucca plant were often chewed so toe ffcers could be mad* Into brushes. The Plains Indians made painting tools from the spongy bone of the buffalo's knee Many Indians also made flat 'spatulas' like small trowels out of wood. They spread colon croacwiM or could ace th* edge of the spatula for matin* lints, as we show. * • • FOR YOU TO DO: Get hold of a few twigs and make an Indian paintbrush, pounding tfa* and and trimming down the fibers. Then crush some berries, such u huckleberries and do a bit of real Indian decorating. Besides berries, Indians used mineral and earth colors, using shells to bold the paint * t t A-S.-J (Ronald Palioni of Amsterdam, NYY., wins $10 for this question.
