We attended a paper sculpture making class conducted by Fong in Subang Jaya. We made a 3-legged dinosaur sculpture using newspaper, white paper, thin wire, masking tape and cardboard. It was held over 3 different days in a week and we spent a few more hours at home doing the final touches. As making the frame was more complicated, I helped the boys with it, but S was the one who decided on the shape and size. They loved doing art and crafts.
|First, the frame is made with rolled-up newspaper and taped together with masking tape and wire. Cardboard was added for the spiky spine. Masking tape was pasted all over the wire to avoid it from rusting.|
|Painting glue and sticking white paper to cover the whole body.|
|After it has dried, the boys painted it with poster colours.|
|2 layers of lacquer was applied to preserve the sculpture.|
|After that, S drew patterns on it with marker pen. It was a little difficult to get a smooth flow of ink using the marker pen. When we returned home, S used OHP pens which had a smoother flow of ink.|
|A few more hours was spent putting final touches - sticking glitter and decorating the body|
|Finally, it is completed.|
