Step 1: Making of Castle - Using Paper Roll
Here I use some paper rolls, which I about to though as these are waste I think, but when the Idea about castle came into my mind, there are the best things I had :)....
1)all the rolls coated with Fevicryl Terracotta primer, and let them dry for hours. I use two coats of primer.
2) arrange the rolls in castle shape and stick with the help Hot Glue.
2)Now colour the rolls with yellow acrylic colour, can be colour as any favourite colour !!!
3) Leave the structure to dry properly. (I left it for overnight)
Step 2: Decoration of the Castle
