Step 1: Supplies
3 Plastic Easter Eggs about 8 inches long
1.5" paper punch
Red, Green and Tan construction paper
Black, Brown and White acrylic paint
Hot Glue Gun
Green, Red, Tan and Black or Dark Brown spray paint
Step 2: Spray Paint Egg
Step 3: Making the Scales
Start by cutting 2" wide strips of construction paper and paint black on each strip. Paint each strip with a gradient - going from black to more and more watered down black. (Use brown for the tan scales)
Let your strips dry.
Punch 1.5" circles out of these dried strips.
You will need to fold this circle to look like a scale. Start by making a "V" but don't come to a point. Start creasing the remaining edge to look like a curve. This is not easy. But you can use your fingernails to crimp the edge.
Then bend the whole shape to give it some dimension.
Step 4: Painting the Charred Bottom
Let that dry.
