|Some sticks have shapes which look like certain creatures. So why not make a model out of them?|
You will need:
|Collect some old dry sticks and twigs. |
First, choose a stick and then draw around it onto a large piece of paper.
|Decide what creature you want to turn your stick into, and draw it onto your paper. |
It doesnít have to be realistic.
|Now take the stick that you drew around, and paint it white with poster or acrylic paint.|
|Copy your drawn design onto the stick, using a felt pen.|
The white paint makes it much easier for you to draw your design onto it.
|When youíve copied all of your design, paint your stick using poster or acrylic paint, using quite earthy colours. When youíve finished, itíll look like a real piece of ancient tribal art.|
|It's good isnít it? Great fun to do, too!|
All you need to do is choose a stick, see what creature it reminds you of, and then design and paint it.
This is another example. Itís a stag.
Try it yourself!
