How to Make a Black and White Mache Reindeer
Pare it down this Christmas and decorate your home with simpler projects like this black and white mache reindeer; the key is to get good coverage of white paint on your mache, and create big bold lines in black marker. Don’t be afraid to go for it!
1. Start by painting your reindeer with white acrylic paint, and leaving to dry. You may need to do more than one coat.
2. Use your black marker to draw a basic eye shape on each side.
3. Next you want to draw some sweeping lines around the body of the reindeer – it helps to imagine he’s wrapped in string lights! Think about how you are going to display the reindeer and which side will face front.
4. Embellish the lines by drawing small bold circles along the length of them in black marker.
