This cow is in the mood for the nice weather! She has already taken her sun hat out of the barn, because if the sun shines hard, you can be bothered by bright sun in your cow's eyes. Of course she has already put on her 2-piece Decopatch suit, because she also gets visitors today. She loves the color pink, which can be seen. The grass is mown, the sun is shining and the milk is fresh so let the farmer come!
Do you also want to decopatchen papier-mâché animals? That's a good idea, because decopatchen (sticking pieces of thin paper with glue and varnish together) is very relaxing and super fun!
Also for children and children's parties these animals are very suitable. It may seem difficult, but that is very easy. And even though it's not quite as neat as a statue from the store, it is completely homemade! And we can't say it often enough: Homemade is always a lot more fun!
Tear small pieces of Decopatch paper and put the glue (also lacquer) ready. With a pencil draw a line in the middle of the cow.
Paste the front part of the cow with overlapping pieces of paper, and do so with her tail.
You paste the other half of her body with a different design paper.
Paint tail and horns with beautiful metallic paint (eg. by Viva Decor Maya)
We simply make the hat from self-hardening (air-drying) clay, e.g.. Fimo Basic.
Clay a pancake and a ball and make them together. Lubricate the edges with a clay tool neatly.
Just fit and shape, and make a hole so that one horn fits through
Just 10 minutes in the microwave (at 600 watts) and the hat is cured!
Wiggle the cow's eyes, pearl dots on her 2-piece suit and on her snout. And of course the hat also gets beautiful yellow pearls dotted!
For the photo, the cow would like to model and show her outfit.
From the side and from the front..
And a “go crazy” picture.. do you always do that at a photo shoot?
