Its during spring with the hot weather that one feels more inclined to eat fruits, isn't it so? Yeap, but not me so... lets just pretend, ah ah ah
This post will give you some insight upon how to or how I did some slices of fig!
- toilet paper cardboard roll (the one that is left after one finishes all the paper
- toilet paper
- white glue
- acrylic paints - red, pink, white, yellow, green and black
So, first of all I cut some small "slices" of the cardboard roll ..,
Don't worry if the paper won't maintain the shape, that's probably a plus! ;)
After applying glue on the "border" I've started gluing the little toilet paper rolls following the movement of the shape.
2nd fun bit - the painting!
So with a deep red I painted the middle with some magenta on the edges of the rolls, between that and the "peel" I applied a coat of white, then a bit of yellow (just a tiny bit) and on the edge edge a slight touch of green that I tried to merge with the yellowish white.
To "pretend" the seeds I could do two things. One was to create little balls either with wet paper or air drying clay and glue them on top and then paint them OR just paint little dots which was what I decided to do :)
For the peel first I gave a sort of transparent coat of black and then, over it, a green one that merged with the black.
And that my friends was it!
Please bare in mind that I made these through a mental recollection, wasn't really trying to copy or to pretend that these fig slices would fool anyone :)
Thanks for visiting and, please, be creative!
