I made this... Captions under pictures!
First we start with the paint swatches. Go to walmart or where ever pretend you want to paint something...
cut off all of the letters if need be
cut them into squares or other pieces
I used a thin piece of cardboard( you can use card stock too) to glue my pieces too because a thin piece of paper probably wouldn't work well at all. I used white pastel to color the background then I rubbed it in with a paper towel.
start gluing the pieces. Use glue sparingly. the
pieces will curl up a little, but thats ok.
half way done, the edges are curled, still that's ok because you are able to work quickly.
I made sure that the glue wasn't sticking out and for a few hours I placed another piece of cardboard and something heavy over the piece and then they flattened out well.
The finished product. I cut out the dragon flies then sectioned them up and put some metallic powders on them. I think this worked out rather well how about you? questions, comments, concerns,ideas??? All are welcome! thanks for looking!
