|Three fat funny little paper mache reindeer|
These are about the size of a can of soft drink. When I was making these I wanted them to look like someone had just picked up a cute, fat, funny mini reindeer by the reins and hung them on the Christmas tree. I’m still struggling with the painting side of things. I like the lighter coloured one the best.
Before I painted these I covered them in cloth but it was quite difficult due to them being so small. Next time I may use something else to cover them before I paint and I really want to practice painting some ‘surprised to be hung on a tree’ facial expressions. Also I’m not sure I like the red ribbon I used to make the reins so next time I may try something else for that also. My mother’s advice about painting is to use more shades, colours of paint and adding more layers. I have watched a few video on YouTube about painting but I still have no idea. I will keep practicing!
