Crafting

...

I love working with my hands to make my own creations. Crafting is my hobby and my passion. I started the craft since I was a child. I worked on many different art projects. Painting, drawing, sculpture, woodworking, design t-shirt, and origami to name a few, and whenever I meet a new medium, trying to master it.

I hope you enjoy the "Craft Foam Donald Duck" guide I've written for you. I have a full time job, working as a graphic designer in the IT industry, I always want more time . I like crafts. I do whenever I have time.

Final Image Materials:
Craft Foam, Scissor, Glue, Pencil, Double Tape

Getting Started:
Craft foam is a thin springy material that comes in different-colored sheets. The foam is easy to cut, glue and paint to be used in many different ways to create colorful accessories such as holiday and party decorations as well as children’s craft projects.
Drawing Donald Duck Step 1:
Our objective is to create cartoon. I've selected 'Donald Duck', I found a small picture drawn on a candy wrapper best suits for this project.

I want to stick this cartoon on a refrigerator, so I took size and started drawing donal duck.
Donald Duck Drawing Step 2:
Here's donald duck finished drawing. We have to cut this drawing, its best to name different portions with color names, so that we don't get confused and cut wrong color sheet. I've selected light blue, orange, yellow, white and black colors for donald duck. I've also selected red and dark orange colors but don't have craft foam so decided to use acrylic paint and marker.
double the line Step 3:
We need two portions of donald duck, one for base and other will cut out in to pieces. We will place these cutouts over base later on. For that purpose we have to draw another line to get margin between base and upper pieces as shown in image.
