|Have you ever really put your foot in it? Not something embarrassing, but literally put your foot in it? If you're wondering what we mean, check out this Art Attack!|
You will need:
|To make your Put Your Foot In It boot, first take a piece of cardboard box card like this one here.|
|Draw a sole shape on the cardboard.|
You could draw around a shoe if you want to.
|Once you've done that, carefully cut it out, and you'll have something that looks like this.|
|Then take a small newspaper, and roll it up loosely, lengthways.|
Tape that into position like this.
|Place this on the heel end of your sole, and again, tape it securely into position.|
Use plenty of tape. This will form the leg.
|To make the rest of the boot shape, screw up a ball of newspaper and just tape it in front of the tube.|
|Then scrunch up a bigger ball of newspaper, and put this on the front of the boot, at the toe end.|
Again, tape it securely into place.
|Roughly scrunch up a page of newspaper, and wrap it around the back of the leg, like this. Once again, tape it securely into place.|
This is now the basic foot shape.
|To strengthen it, and give it a leather texture, mix some PVA glue in equal parts with water, slop it onto the newspaper boot, and pop on some kitchen roll, tissue paper or loo roll.|
Cover the whole thing in two layer, and try to place the newspaper so it looks like the outside of a boot shape.
|This might take you some time, but when you've done it, and you've left the whole thing to dry, you'll have something that looks like this. The boot will have gone rock hard, and be ready to paint.|
Use poster or acrylic paint, in any colour you like.
|Next, make the hole in the ceiling... but not literally!|
Just take a piece of cardboard box card about 40cm by 40cm, and draw a dot roughly in the middle.
Then draw lines from this dot like this, almost to the edge.
|Then pop a hole in the middle with a pencil, and cut along all of the lines almost to the edge.|
When you've done that, you'll have something that looks like this.
|Then roughly tear some paper triangles (and they don't have to be neat), dab some glue along the outside edge, and stick these paper triangles with the points facing inwards.|
|Do them all the way around, and when you've done that, you'll have something that looks like this.|
Bend back all the paper bits and cardboard so it looks like the whole thing has been burst through!
|Then take another piece of card, cut it the same shape, and paint one side completely black.|
|Glue the two pieces of card together with lots of strong glue along the outside edges, so that the piece of card you painted black is facing out of the hole.|
|And then finally stick your boot into the hole, using both glue and plenty of tape to secure it.|
|Finally, stick it to the ceiling or a door... and there it is - put your foot in it!|
Try it yourself.
