    2. Paint a design onto your skateboard using watercolor paints.
    3. Leave to dry. When nearly dry wrap each end of the skateboard around a pencil tightly - this will cause the paper to bend up slightly forming the curve of the board.
    4. Cut a 4 thin strips of card around 1/4 inch wide and 3 to 4 inches long. Tightly roll each strip to make a wheel, securing at the end with a dab of hot glue.
