The materials I used were:
1: Shoe box top, cut down to the size of the envelope I'm using.
3: Matte medium & spray fixative.
4: Watercolor and color pencils.
5: Hole puncher
And here is how a hug was born:
|Sketch yourself and your hands|
|Prep the shoebox top with some matte medium so the paint won't bleed.|
|Paint it with your choice of medium. I used watercolors & Color pencils|
|Hole punch where you will pass the string.|
|Cut out your mini-me|
|Pass the string through the holes & tied it. Make sure the arms are long enough to hug your friend|
|Ready to be mailed.|
If you mail a hug, do share a pic! I would love to see all kinds of hugs being mailed :)
