How to Make an Egyptian Costume
Ancient Egypt was my favourite subject at school, and still holds great fascination. If you’re a parent with children studying it, chances are there will be a dress up day at school. Hobbycraft is on hand with a costume solution, so put the toilet paper down and try this for size.
Suitable for : Intermediate
Time to Make : One hour 30 minutes, plus 30 minutes baking for the Fimo
For the Necklace You Will Need
For the Neck Plate You Will Need
1. Take half a block of Fimo and soften it up by kneading in your hands.
2. When the Fimo is soft enough to mould, roll it into a thick sausage shape and flatten to desired shape and size.
3.Using your modelling tool or pencil add a hanging hole at the top and use it to add your hieroglyphic markings.
4. Place your finished necklace in the oven following the instructions on the packaging for 30 minutes and then leave to cool
5.To finish the necklace you can seal with Fimo Varnish if you wanted and thread through a length of ribbon.
Start by cutting the centre out of a paper plate as well as a segment from the edge of the plate.
Paint your neck plate with a main base colour.
Whilst the neck plate is drying paint your pasta shapes, to do this mix equal parts glue and paint as well as adding a lot of glitter and then stir the pasta in.
When the pasta is completely coated in the paint and glitter mix, place each piece onto a plate or sheet of paper to dry, I also added another shake of glitter to the wet pasta for extra sparkle.
Use a felt tip pen add your detailed decorations to the plate.
When you are happy with the more detailed decorations use glue to add your pasta shapes and beads. Leave the completed neck plate to dry.
