Enjoy the sun and Mother Nature these summer holidays with these fun painted stick monsters. They're a great way to use your imagination and create weird and wonderful creatures!

Step

Step 1:

Go for a walk with Mum or Dad and find some sticks with interesting shapes. The weirder, the better! We've painted our sticks with different coloured strips to create a pattern. Tip: Try mixing different coloured Micador Acrylic Paints together to create new colours.

Step 2:

Use your imagination to add details for your monster. Here we've painted the snap of the stick red so that it looks like the monster's mouth.

Step 3:

Once you've painted your stick monster, use Micador 3D Paint to add the detail. A great way to choose where the monster's eyes should go is to find little knobs on the stick, then use the white 3D Paint for the eyes.

Then use the black 3D Paint for the monster's pupils.
