S For Skull Art – Get Crafty #BlogchatterA2Z

While choosing activity for letter ‘S’, me and Eira were curious to see a skull painted. I wanted to think over for a minute but she was adamant. When we studied of how to go about it, we were excited to see how it is going to work out.

Skulls are symmetrical. That means that if you draw a line between the skull, you will find both parts exactly the same. In Mathematics, it’s called the “Line of symmetry”. We are going to use this math logic while working on this art. It’s called blot painting. Blot as you paint to keep the skull symmetrical and then make it more vibrant with colors.

Black chart paper
White paint
Oil pastels

Let’s get started

1. Fold the black paper in half. This line in the middle is going to be the line of symmetry.

2. Start painting the skull in bits and parts. Make the top of the skull first and immediately fold the paper. The color on one side of the line will blot.on the other side and will make the exact same shape. Do not mix paint with water. The blotting process might not work out properly.

3. Keep making the skull in the next two steps and blot them.

4. Now make the eyes, nose and teeth and blot them too. One thing at a time to make sure the paint doesn’t dry out.

5. It’s time to add some colors. Let your child add some vibrant colors using oil pastels.
