We have been very busy in the last week of Term 2. We drew onto a piece of board, the picture of our animal or character we wanted to do...
|Then we used sandpaper to smooth out the edges.|
|Dust went everywhere...The sandpaper was really rough to touch!|
|"My bunny feels nice and smooth now"|
After we sanded down the edges of our piece of work, we then primed the wood with white paint (which sealed the wood), we had to draw our details on again and then we painted using lots of different colours.
|Only two kids at a time...it took AGES....|
|We had to change the size of our brush to suit what we were doing, it was quite tricky!|
|Watch out! A big mint green spider is being created! Ahhhh!|
|Some of our finished products...we are very proud and can't wait until the Out door Art Exhibition to show them off!|
After we had all painted the colours on our work, there was one more thing to do...
Shelley used varnish to seal all the paint so our pieces of work could go outside in the rain...
|They look all shiny now!|
|We even have a kite, inspired from a Matariki story we listened too.|
|Shelley is busy varnishing!|
|These are all the resene paint colours we could choose from. There were heaps of colours!|
