Cotton need pre-painted in multi-colored colors. This is done with the help of textile dyes, which can be purchased at a household chemistry store. The painting process is very simple: dye in a saucepan with water, put cotton wool, bring to a boil. Vata is infused for several minutes, after which it is wrung out and dried.
Welding a paste is also very simple. It is more convenient to use than regular PVA glue, as it is more transparent and its texture is more watery. To weld a paste, you must boil a glass of water and dissolve in it two full tablespoons of starch with a slide. The cooled solution will become very sticky.
Salty dough will be necessary in order to create realistic faces and faces for toys, as they imitate figures of people and animals. Kneading such a dough is simple: mix two parts of flour with one part of salt and add water by eye so that the texture reminds you of plasticine.
The dough is formed into the necessary recessed stick figure and baked in the oven for half an hour at a temperature 110-120 degrees. After this, the dough must be painted with acrylic paints, paint all the details: eyes, lips, cheeks and cover with colorless nail polish.
Wire needed make the foundation. All other elements will be attached to this base. The basis should repeat the preferred figure, for example, of a person. For volume the base is wrapped in newspaper layers soaked in a paste. The ends of the wire (pens and nights) should be wrapped first with cotton, moistening it with paste. After that, the newspaper also covered with a cotton layer.
The top of the wire should attach a face molded from salt dough (make a notch in advance). All details should be done very carefully, hands should be washed often, since paints will remain on them and spoil light shades. You can form pigtails, hats and other little things with the help of thin wooden sticks, which should always help you in your work.
