Here's an Art Attack for a still life with a difference!
You will need:
|First choose an object for a still life, like this bottle, and cover it completely in cling film.|
|Take care to press the cling film into all the nooks and crannies of whichever object you've chosen.|
|Next, mix up some PVA glue with water, and paste on some small, torn up pieces of tissue paper.|
|Using different shades of tissue paper gives a more interesting effect.|
|The idea is to do three or four layers, each going right down to the bottom oe the object.|
|When the tissue paper and PVA glue has dried, insert a pair of scissors at the bottom, and cut the cast off, as neatly as you can...|
|...then carefully prise the object away from the cast.|
|Next, paste on more tissue paper and PVA glue along the seam, to join it up.|
When the seam is covered, leave it to dry.
When it has dried, you'll have something that looks like this!
|You can produce other objects in this way, and arrange them on a plate to produce a 3D still life!|
If you like, you can glue them down onto a paper plate - like this - and cover the plate in tissue paper toO!
This one is a sort of "bathroom accessories" still life.
Or how about this? The more objects you add, the more spectacular it looks!
Do remember to ask for permission before you start pasting tissue paper on objects around the house!
Try it yourself!
