At present, the apartments live soa variety of domestic animals that even your eyes scatter when choosing a pet for yourself. They are dogs, cats, turtles, rabbits, and many, many other animals. Small guinea pigs are also popular. They, like cats with dogs and other animals, have a rich color palette. In this master class it is shown how to make a guinea pig yourself. The guinea pig is easy to fool, but it takes a long time. The only thing that will be more difficult to do is the front paws. But you can cope with this too! Materials and tools:
- a needle for felting;
Stages of work: We will use several colors of wool - black, white, red, pink. We will need very little pink hair, only for a spout. And all the other colors are for the guinea pig itself. It is also not necessary to take three colors, you can make it and one-color or two-color. To whom what color is more like. To save the wool, we will take unnecessary wool. In this case - gray. You can just wool from the right color. Then you should first pile the main part of the wool, which will be more in the color of the toy. First we pile the corpse of our future guinea pig. The body and head are integral, inseparable. And they roll around together. We need to mold this shape so that it looks a bit like an egg. One part should be narrower, and the second one should be wider. There, wherever, there will be a muzzle. Paws make black. For them we tear off the wool and just lay on the sponge two sausages. This we will have hind legs. We will not elaborate on them, as they will be almost invisible. They will hide under the belly of our future toy. And the front paws will do it differently. We need to make three fingers on each foot. To do this, take the wire. And we twist it together so that we get three protruding details. Now take the black coat and start wrapping each finger. To fingers were not fluffy, and the wool is not untwisted and well held, we will coat them with PVA glue. Dry the fingers and continue to make the front paws. We slightly bend the fingers in the middle and press them down so that they are closer to each other. We remove the paws to the side and start making ears. They too will be black. We lay flat parts on the sponge. They should be round and resemble the ears of Mickey Mouse, but will be much smaller. After all, in a guinea pig they are not so huge. And now we begin to paint our maindetail. Make the muzzle completely white. Therefore carefully we put there white wool so that no lumens remain and the lower gray wool is not visible. Next, we seal the ears and color the sides of our mumps with black hair. We attach the hind legs to the calf, then the front ones. The rear should remain under the body, and the front should stick out in front. Now we add a few bright colors to our toy. On the back we will make a red strip. You can take two shades of red, then this speck will look even more interesting. Needle for felting outline a spout. Just poke it until we draw it. Now take a thin strip of pink wool andwe seal over those contours that we just drew with a needle for a spout. And in place of the eye we seal black hair. Our guinea pig is ready! Of course, such a toy will not replace a living home friend, but it will become a wonderful decoration for a house. And also it can be presented as a small souvenir to your friends.
