Carnival portraits

You need:
  1. a shelf
  2. balloon
  3. newspaper strips
  4. wallpaper paste
  5. toilet rolls, bottle caps, polystyrene etc.
  6. toilet paper or paper towels
  7. acrylic paint or tempera paint
  8. brushes
  9. glitter
  10. confetti
  11. black marker

Blow the balloon. Paste newspaper strips on the half of the ballon. Be sure you have at least eight layers. Let the work dry. Take the balloon uit. Cut the edges and lay this half balloon on the shelf. Use costless things like toilet rolls, bottle caps or polystyrene to shape the face. Fix these parts with newspaper strips and wallpaper paste. The last layer has to be toilet paper or paper towel. Let the work dry again. Paint the portrait with acrylic paint or undiluted tempera. Give the face a body. Sprinkle glitter or confetti in the wet paint.

This lesson and photographs were sent to me by Ghislaine Aarts.
