- Low-Temp Hot Glue Gun
- Plastic Foam Knife
- Paint Brush
- Lia Griffth Double-Sided Crepe Paper in Green Tea & Cypress, Blush & Chiffon
- Pan Pastels in Violet and Pearlescent Violet
- Copic Markers in Strong Red, Salmon Red and Cadmium Yellow
- Foam Eggs – 1 7/8 “ x 2 1/2”
- Spray Matte Finish (optional)
- Gather the tools and materials listed above.
- For a half fig, cut a foam egg in half. Smash in the top of both full and half pieces to create pointy tops.
- To cover the full fig, cut out a rectangle around the width of the egg (approx 6″ x 4″), going with the grain. Glue and gather in both ends, making the bottom flush with an egg shape and the top glued and gathered to create a stem.
- Trace the half fig on blush & chiffon crepe paper. Cut out slightly larger so the paper folds around the edges of the foam.
