silhouette: a dark shape in front of a light background, the shape or outline of something
Hello Bizzie Bees,
Kit 10 is here! Can you guess what object I might have used to create my silhouette creature with?
I collected different objects from around my home and tested out the shadows they would make.
Try moving the flashlight closer/further away and rotating the objects until you see a shape you find interesting.
Paint the shape you traced with the black fabric paint. Add a little water to the paint so that it can be brushed on more easily. Do one coat first, let it dry and check for lighter patches. Then paint on a second coat. I did three coats of paint on mine.
While your painted silhouette is drying, look at your felt colours and sketch out some ideas for your creature.
Cut the felt—organic shapes, geometric shapes...and once the paint is dry, place onto your silhouette to make your cushion creature. When you have all the pieces in place, glue them on.
