  • The Very Hungry Caterpillar Mobile Tutorial (Part 2) | Carle Museum
    was time to use tempera paint to add all the details to the food I used the illustrations in the book as a reference as I worked because it is amazing to see how many colors Eric Carle used in each of the foods I tried to paint similar colors at the same time to make the painting go faster For example I started with all the warm yellows and tans in the ice cream cone the Swiss cheese the pie crust and the cupcake Then I could add the darker browns in the chocolate cake and the lollipop stick The painting does take the most time because you will want to paint both sides if you are making a mobile If you plan on hanging your food creations on a bulletin board or other wall then save some time and only paint one side I used a colored pencil to draw the lines on the ice cream cone and the sprinkles on the piece of chocolate cake instead of painting them on with a brush After all the foods are painted and dry you can cut out the holes the caterpillar ate You can do this with scissors or with a hole punch like the Circle Cutter by Fiskars If you want to read more about the hole punches we use and like in The Studio take a look at this blog post Use an awl or other sharp tool to make small holes to hang the foods in your mobile Now you should be ready to assemble your mobile using fishing line After stringing the fishing line through the small holes I made with the awl I tied at least three knots to make sure the connection point was secure I started by connecting the chocolate cake ice cream cone and pickle and then did the same with the remaining foods Once you have the food connected the way you want then you can start attaching each line of food to one of the sticks you are using for your mobile You could also use wire or any other rigid material as a the structural hanging point for you mobile Remember to find the balancing point by balancing the stick on your finger and then you will know where to attach the fishing line I found working on a large table top or even the floor helps keep the fishing line from getting tangled Hang your mobile up and enjoy your artwork We love hearing from our readers and like to learn about any modifications or versions that other people try out Please write a comment if you made your own mobile and were at all inspired by the ones we have hanging in The Studio by Sarah Johnston Tags classroom art classroom ideas eric carle inspired mixed media 2 mobile painting tissue paper painting with children the very hungry caterpillar tissue paper studio display This entry was posted on Thursday August 8th 2013 at 3 04 pm

    glue dry We then added a second layer of tissue paper on the back of the transparency sheet so that the mobile would look the same on both sides as it turned and moved After the glue is dry the tissue paper is ready to be painted We had fun mixing the colors right on top of the tissue paper Children can help with painting the papers in fun colors Once the sheets are dry they are ready to be cut out into the fruit shapes We made two red sheets one green sheet two purple sheets and two orange sheets for the five different types of fruit in the book Feel free to make your mobile pieces any color size or shape to make it unique After cutting out the basic shapes of the fruit we added extra little details like stems seeds and leaves to make it look more like Eric Carle s illustrations in The Very Hungry Caterpillar To make the holes in the middle of the fruit we used our Circle Cutter by Fiskars You can see our post about other good circle cutting tools here An Xacto knife would also work fine Remember to use a self healing mat under your paper so you don t cut into your table You can then use an awl or other sharp pointy tool to make holes in the top and bottom of the fruit shapes to connect them on the mobile again with a self healing mat under your working area Once the holes are in the fruit then the shapes can be connected with the fishing line You can configure your mobile however you would like and it can be a challenge to get everything to balance If you want ideas for mobiles here is a good diagram of some different options for designing your mobile You can find the middle balancing point on the stick by balancing the stick on one finger Once you find the balancing point with your finger you know where to attach the fishing line Have fun creating by Sarah Johnston Tags classroom art classroom ideas eric carle inspired mixed media 2 mobile painting tissue paper painting with children the very hungry caterpillar tissue paper studio display This entry was posted on Tuesday July 30th 2013 at 8 00 am and is filed under Painting Sculpture You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2 0 feed You can leave a response or trackback from your own site Leave a reply Your name Mail will not be published Website Share CAPTCHA This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions Catherine Stone says February 12 2016 at 1 49pm I love this Because of Eric Carle I began experimenting with painted tissue paper and create a lot of papers which i use when I teach kids and adults at a non profit Carlisle Arts Learning Center and in
