Im so excited cause this project has been done for a couple days now.. and I just needed the time to finally post the progress.. I dont wanna totally dominate one post.. so I will post the finished product in another post tomorrow! So make sure to come back! :)
This is part 3 of creating my own life size photo cut out. You can see the beginning stages of the idea in part one here, and the materials and starting sketch in part two here. :)
So in this post.. my progress so far is getting the face holes cut and starting the paint job! My husband did the saw work. And I took pics as he went.. sorry they arent the best.. took them with my cell phone, in between holding the sheet rock for him. :)
He had trouble seeing the right face lines.. so I took an orange sharpie and made it more clear what line to follow and cut! Isnt he so wonderful for helping me with this project! :)
Once the face holes were cut.. I needed to seal them.. we tested them out before hand and got white powder all over our faces from the sheet rock. :) So I used Mod Podge to seal it.. just applied a generous amount all along the inside of the face holes.. and it sealed it perfectly!
Painting in progress... remember this is life size.. and there was a lot of detail i wanted to include.. just the painting I had gotten done this day took me about 4 hours.
I sent this picture to my sisters.. and they all text me back saying the same thing "her hair looks just like yours" lol..
while I was working on the girl's bikini i dropped the paint brush and got a big spot of orange on her body!
Up close detail of the hair and flower.. Im really loving how it turned out actually.
And here is where I ended for the day. :)
Thanks for stopping by to check this out.. be sure to come back tomorrow to see the final reveal of the whole finished photo cut out!! :) Im very excited to show it off! My party is Friday and I think it will be a fun feature to add to the party!
