Hanging painted Canvas Figures
The pre-cut canvas figures are painted with Pigment Acrylic Paint. They are then sewn together, filled with polyester stuffing and finished off with wooden beads attached to pieces of flax twine.
How to do it
Draw a design on the figure with a pencil.
Outline the pencil lines with a black marker pen.
Paint with diluted Pigment paint. Skin colour is achieved by mixing brown with white.
When adding a small amount of blue paint in the yellow paint, this results in a beautiful lime colour.
Primary red mixed with white results in different shades of pink. Remember to also paint a canvas figure for the back.
Paint wooden beads in matching colours.
Make gold dots with a foam stencil brush and Plus Color gold.
Pour some black Pigment paint into a refill plastic bottle with a tip and use it for drawing the outlines. Write text on the back.
Thread beads onto pieces of flax twine.
Sew the parts together with doubled over Mercerised cotton yarn. Make the holes with an awl. Also remember to sew on the piece of flax twine for hanging. Do not sew the doll together at the bottom yet.
Fill the doll with polyester stuffing.
Sew the doll together at the bottom. At the same time, sew on the pieces of flax twine with the beads.
