More or less following the instructions of the Reaper Learn to Paint Kit #1.
This kit is great for teaching the fundamentals of mini painting. The included mini has just the right amount of detail to provide practice in painting details, but not so much to overwhelm the novice. The included paints are a good starter set and are full Reaper Master Series paint bottles. It also includes two brushes, a detail brush and a flat brush for base and drybrushing. I would recommend reading over the instructions a few times to get the feel for things, but they are pretty good, as are the illustrations.
