Start off by painting the entire mache cone in a single colour. Allow this layer to dry properly and then apply another layer. Keep doing this step until the mache cone is well covered.
Using a pencil, draw a line around the top of the mache cone. This line creates a guide for you to follow when you paint the tip of the cone.
Top Tip! If you want to avoid using paint altogether to create the polka dots, why not try using a Uni Posca marker pen?
Now it’s time for some polka dots! There are lots of different ways you can do this step. You can use a paintbrush and paint on your polka dots very carefully, or use the paintbrush to create ‘blobs’ with. You could also use a circular shaped sponge to create each polka dot. Make sure to leave space between each polka dot as well.
There you have it! One beautiful, simplistic Christmas Mache Cone!
