You can’t daw a face?
If you missed the other posts in the making faces series you can read them here and here. Today let’s talk about
If you can’t draw a face (or you want a shortcut), cut & glue down your face. You can cut out whichever body parts give you a hard time, the whole body if you want. I drew several positions before I decided which to go with. What is fun about this collage technique is that you can use a different head for a body, there making whatever position you want, creating all types of scenes.
The face is on heavy paper so when it’s glued down doesn’t sit flush, but slightly raised from the rest of the surface. If this happens to you, use a little gesso to raise the sides of the surface to match the face. This also works if you are changing the hair color or clothes. Then paint as usual.
I hope you have enjoyed this week making faces posts and videos. All of the stencils, dies, and stamps are available in the shop now! Please leave me a comment on any ideas that you would love to learn about next! See
