Use it for yourself or give it as a gift.
Step 1: What You Need....
~ 4 20oz soda bottles or water bottles whichever
~ pink paint (or red and white if you don't have pink)
~ paint brush
~ liquid nails
~ exacto knife (or some other sharp blade)
~ sand paper
Step 2: Cut the Legs
After cutting the legs, sand all your parts.
Sanding will give the paint something to hold on to.
Step 3: Add the Legs
Apply your liquid nails along the cut edge of the legs and hold them to the body until it no longer wiggles.
Best to do that ONE AT A TIME.
Since you are already using the liquid nails, you can go ahead and glue the nose (the cap) of your pig shut if you want, mine is not sealed because I would like for this lil piggy to continue living after it's done it's job. (meaning we wont need to cut him open to extract the $$ .. we will only need to unscrew his nose and dump the monies out)
Step 4: Add Your Ears
( I forgot the ears before i started painting .. that's why piggy is already pink in this step)
Step 5: Mix Your Paint and Then ... Paint
paint the piggy
I use a dabbing motion .. instead of the standard brushing motion .. this eliminates brush strokes and adds a lil texture
Step 6: Add Your Eyes and Don't Forget the Nose Holes!!
any eyes will do... I just went with plain ol' black circles .. but you can do whatever
Piggy's got to breath so don't forget the nose holes!
Step 7: Coin Slot
Mark the spot with your sharpie.
Use your exacto knife or whatever blade you wish to cut the sharpie mark out.
