I used homemade lemon essence as the base. I make it with a mix of vodka and everclear so there is a lot of alcohol in it and I didn't use much of it -- the 'paint' was more like a thin craft acrylic sort of thickness, not a water colour sort of thickness.
I had the most problem getting the eyes to dot. I was using an americolor marker, no idea why it wouldn't work.
