This kind of cows shape is made of paper mache. (You can find this in the webshop of Trixx Creatief.)
Below you can see 3 types of cows from the webshop. By clicking on it you see all about this cow . You can edit any cow the way you want. Think of: Decopatch, Diamont Painting, Sticky Clay, Collall Cold Enamel.
My previous cows I made through. Decopatch (the black and white version is made by the @De Craft Teacher Ede ✂️ )
Today a fun cow experiment with Collall Cold Enamel. This material has the gloss and external properties of enamel. But you do not need an oven. With this material I only worked on a flat surface, so now time for an artful cow!
I use the colors red, white and blue. A typical Dutch cow.. just like the Dutch flag! Apply the cold enamel to the cow with the handy dosing bottle. It flows right to the lowest point so now creative experimentation begins. Don't let it move what ends with it when you tilt the cow around. Of course that gives some drips here and there so a rug underneath or an old newspaper is fine!
So edit the cow with these colors. You will see that they do not mix in color but go marble . It requires a little practice because the material spreads quickly. But that's not bad either, little playing with it is really fun to do! You can pierce any air bubbles with a cocktail stick! With that same stick you also make patterns in the enamel paint.
Gradually, the cow is filled more and more. Let the top have a little draped out before you do the bottom. The material always dries up a bit, so even if you want to do something again, you can always!
Is your cow ready? Then of course you give it a nice place! Make this cool cow with a whole group, then you have a super fun art project!
