A bunch of oranges 🍊 or a coconut πŸ₯₯, different kinds of bubble 🫧 wraps, a bottle of vinegar, white paper, a small packet of baking soda, and a watercolor pen.


  • I slice an orange 🍊 (or chop a coconut πŸ₯₯) from the center, and the segment of one of the two pieces of the sliced orange (or coconut) exposing the interior side serves as a unique stamp to form a volleyball’s 🏐 outline on the white art paper.
