Here is what you'll need to make some dotting tools:

Step 2: Marker tools- The Second Set

You can use the back of a marker or Sharpie to make medeum to big Dotting tools. Cheap markers with the balls at the end work best. :)

Step 3: Using the back of a pencil- Set 3

You can use a #2 pencil or mechanical pencil eraser to make a large dot. They're good for Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer noses in the winter! :P (BTW sorry for the horrible quality)

Step 4: Using Toothpicks- Set #4

You can use toothpicks and the back of one-sided Q-tips to make tiny dotting tools. Cutepolish from YouTube uses these to make some of her nail art (I wasnt sponsered to say that!)! This is one of the easiest sets to make, in my opinion.

Step 5: The Last Set!
