How to Paint a Snail
Either find a snail, or if you read "How to Care For a Brown Garden Snail", use the snail you already have!
If you don't have a snail, this is how to catch one:Look under rocks, wood, flowerpots, or dark, shady places in your backyard! It helps if you live by the woods, or if it just rained.
Now, gather supplies!You will need non-toxic acrylic paint, paintbrushes (size depending on how big your snail is), a small bottle, and, of course, a snail (or two)!
Pick your first snail.Make a cool design on it's shell. Don't worry, the paint is non-toxic. The snail will be fine! Make something cool, like a race car number on the side.
When you're done with the first snail, put it in the bottle as it waits for all its friends!
Now that you're done, release the snail, or keep it and display its true awesomeness!The only reason I didn't say anything about buying the snail is because if you buy it, you can't release it!

- Don't even think about using paint that doesn't say non-toxic on it! Toxic paint would ultimately poison the snail, resulting in an unfortunate death.
- Don't release the snail after it's been painted, the colouring of the shell makes it easier for birds to spot it. However if it's non-toxic and washable after you're done. Wash the shell until the paint is gone; then you may release it.
- Don't paint the soft parts of the snail!
