I couldn’t help myself.
- acrylic paint & brush
- black Sharpie
- wool roving
- toothpick or skewer
- glue gun
1. Gather some stones, and make sure they are clean and dry before painting.
2. Acrylic paints are a great choice because they won’t wash off. Add paint, and once dry, use a Sharpie to add some facial features.
3. Here comes the fun part. Think back to late 70’s, when punk was at its peak, and mohawks ruled. You’ll likely need to show kids some images on the internet, so they can get inspired by the gravity defying hairstyles. Wool roving works really well for this. It’s easy to form spikes by rolling it between your fingers. Adding a little moisturizer to your hands helps.
The easiest way to attach the wool is to cut off the amount you’ll be using, add some glue to the stone with a glue gun, and press the wool on top. You may end up with some hot glue on your fingers, so this part should be done by an adult. Once the wool is attached, you can gently separate sections using a toothpick or skewer, and roll between your fingers to form spikes. Avoid pulling the wool or it may come off, but is easy to glue back on.
