Today at ArtforAll 2012 in Portland, my friend Pam McVay hosted a "make and take" demo on shrink plastic dolls. I decided to create an owl, based on the "drawing an owl" technique I learned last Sunday at our local art group. Danielle's class was adapted from Juliette Crane’s “How to Paint an Owl” class at Art Fest 2012.
This is is the after picture:
This is the before:
Drawn using Prisma color pencils... and it was amazing how deep they became once they were "shrunk" in the craft oven.
I also created this little owl. Did not allow for shrinkage when placing the holes for the wings, and cannot add the brads to hold the wings. I'll tie them on later.
And then I started this owl, which will be "shrunk" tomorrow:
These owls are so much fun to draw that I'll be making more of them!
