Brittany was eager to get started.
(It took me almost a full day to develop an idea and set up the space.)
We are making an art doll. The base is foam core. Brittany's first assignment was to draw and color a face on Shrinky Dink plastic. We kept our fingers crossed that the face would shrink to the correct size - it did!
Assorted papers were glued to the base. Here Brittany is scuffing the "wrong" side of the face to enable it to adhere to the base. We used Weldbond for this purpose.
Brittany is busy, busy, busy. I had planned to take a lot more photos of our "process", but got so caught up in what we were doing that I completely forgot about the camera!
Our girls are almost finished...
I don't know who is cuter, Brittany or the doll she made. I'm sure you will agree Brittany is cuter!
I don't want you to think that I worked her so hard that we forgot about lunch! No way. As a matter of fact, Brittany brought her own lunch and one for me too!!
Brittany remembered that the last thing we were to do was sign and date our work. (I almost forgot!)
Brittany has left now. She did help me clean up. We had paper and glue everywhere! This is my finished piece.
We had a great day together. If you have the opportunity, invite a child to play. It is so much fun!
