After much observation, we discussed how the appearance of texture on a sea star might be recreated in art. The final product was a hand cut sea star covered in orange and white paint... with fine detail work that included a pencil and toothpick. It was a lot of work but a lot of fun and the results were fantastic!
Take a cut out of a sea star and colored paint of choice - in this project we used brown paper, orange paint and white paint. With the end of a pencil, the eraser end, you will dip it in the colored paint and make several, several... did I mention several paint dots all over the sea star. The paint being a tad gloppy is good as it will create even more visual texture. Then you will dip a tooth pick into white paint and create even more white dots all over the sea star. The layers of these two paints will give a textured look similar to a sea star.
