How to Make a Kirigami Sheep
On behalf of TVLesson.com, my name is Sherie Tengbergen. I'm a professional artist with the WatercolorGourmet.com. In this clip I'm going to show you how to make a Kirigami sheep that actually stands up. This is him right here and I've already gone ahead and fold a white paper in half. And I'm going to go ahead and start cutting my sheep out. And the sheep has a lot of little puff balls on him as sheep do. So I have to kind of twist and turn my scissors quite a bit to get that look in my sheep.
And I'm just going to keep merrily going around. Sometimes I like to cut off the excess paper because that just makes it a little bit easier to get the shape that I want for my animal, in this case a sheep. So I'm going to use my scissors and I'm just going to keep turning and twisting and cutting round shapes. So then I'm doing this front part now, the front foot and you can do all kinds of animals this way. You can do a cat or dog. You could turn this to a poodle dog very easily and the important thing is that you make sure you add a little part for the nose like I'm doing here.
Now I've got my sheep done and I want to bend him a little bit on each side and that’s what actually makes him stand. And the last thing I want to do, so I'm going to put some detail. I'm going to use a pink colored pencil to make a nose and I'm going to use my black magic marker to fill in his feet. The sheep have kind of dark feet on them just like that. I think I'm going to fill this one in just a little bit more, a little bit more fun. And then all you have to do is bend the feet down like this and you can even bend the ears a little bit if you would like to and you have a finished Kirigami sheep.
