A wooden Father Christmas covered with gauze bandage
How to do it
Cut the gauze bandage into 1-3 cm pieces. You will also need a bowl of water.
Soak one piece of gauze bandage at a time and model a small potbelly on the wooden figure. Attach several pieces of gauze bandage and let some of the pieces spread around the edge and onto the back.
Shape the gauze bandage into a point, model a substantial beard and use the modelling tool for adding structure to the beard.
Cover the elf's hat with gauze bandage. Let some of the pieces reach around the edge and onto the back. Model creases in the gauze bandage like creases in an elf's hat and model a thick edge on the hat just above the nose.
Make a small bulge under the coat on the back of the wooden figure for the bottom. Model an edge at the bottom of the coat at the back using the technique described in step 4.
Cover the base with gauze bandage but avoid gauze bandage underneath it to ensure that the figure can stand straight.
Cover the entire front and back of the Father Christmas figure with gauze bandage, create a face with space for eyes, but avoid covering the nose.
Leave the gauze bandage to dry overnight. Paint the figure with craft paint.
Use a Plus Color marker for the eyes.
Apply a coat of transparent acrylic lacquer to strengthen the surface. Sprinkle silver glitter in the wet lacquer around the face, the beard and the stand.
The wooden figure on a stand is available in two sizes. The small ones are cute as decoration next to the person's place setting, while the large ones can be used for decoration on the Christmas table.
