FOAM ANIMAL SKATE DECKS
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
- 3x Timber Skate Board Deck
- Creatology Foam Sheet Packs
- Hot glue
- Acrylic Paint
- Paint bushes
- Water to clean brushes
Step 1 - Choose which animals you would like to create on your skate decks. We chose a lion, zebra and tiger.
Step 2 - Begin by painting your skate decks in the colours that match your animals. We used brown for the Lion, white for the Zebra and orange for the Tiger. Use a large paint brush to paint an even coat of the acrylic paint. Allow to dry completely before painting a second coat.
Step 3 - While your skate decks are drying you can begin working on the animal faces. Using a pencil lightly draw the outlines of the animal features onto the foam. For each animal we created a face, mouth, nose, eyes, ears and whiskers/hair, stripes and feet. You can be as creative as you wish in this step or use pictures as inspiration to decide how you want your animals to look.
Step 4 - Once the skate decks are dry and you have all your foam pieces cut out it's time to assemble your animals. Using a hot glue gun or double-sided tape stick all the foam pieces onto the skate deck and watch your animals come to life!
Step 5 - Display on a wall to finish!
