Crafty Snowdogs – Week 4

The Snowdog Art Club Paint Your Own

Week 4 of St. Lukes Paint Your Own Snowdog Art Club sees students from years 4, 5 & 6 getting creative with their selection of art materials. With only one week to go the students get busy layering up paint in readiness for those finishing touches!

The Paint Your Own Snowdog figurines will be finalised with their Snowdog designs over the next week. Follow the Paint Your Own Snowdog blog posts to view the Art Club’s Paint Your Own Snowdog progress!

The students have an armoury of art materials at their disposal including the 6 water based paints and brush that come with the Paint Your Own Snowdog. In addition, they are using a special gloss acrylic paint, silver and gold glitter, ribbons, emulsion and Posca Pens courtesy of the nice people at Cass Art.

The Starry, Starry Night Snowdog shows off his glossy coat which glistens in the light!

The gloss acrylic takes slightly longer to dry but is well worth the wait for the super shiny results! It has been used to create shiny wellington boots and glossy wet Snowdog noses.

With the support of the nice people at Cass Art, the students were able to start adding detail to their Snowdogs using Posca Pens. Being paint based and with a range of different nib sizes, the Posca Pens allow for easy application of smooth, thick lines of paint.

The students will be getting to grips with the Posca Pens in their final art club next week when they add those all important finishing touches.
