COCONUT SHELL CAT

Do you like this cat???????
The art piece is very precious to me ,as it is the shell of our garden's first coconut!!!!!
Ok!! coming to the way I made it ........

WHAT YOU NEED ARE:
Coconut shell ,acrylic paints ,thread ,cello tape , blade .

THE PROCESS:
* clear all the fibres from the shell using a blade
*use acrylic paints (so that you can wash the piece)
*I do not have used paints in the face of the cat ,the texture of the coconut gives the real hairy effect
*sketch the eyes lightly and paint them
*use a black or dark back ground , so that the face gets embossed .
*attach a thread using a cello tape ......hang it .........scare the rats!!!!
