Steps to make the instrument
Step 1. First cut a 1 and 1/2 inch piece off of the plywood.
Step 2. Position the tongue depressors in place so that each one sticks out a little longer than the next one.
Step 3. Put a piece of masking tape over the tongue depressors to hold them in place.
Step 4. Glue the 1 and 1/2 inch piece of plywood on the top of the tongue depressors to hold them down. Let this dry overnight.
Step 5. Once the glue dries, paint a coat of wood sealer over the wood and the tongue depressors so that the watercolor paint will stick to the wood. Let this dry for 30-60 minutes.
Step 6. Paint the instrument. Let this dry overnight.
