What You'll Need
1 Gather your supplies!
Start by printing out the free character stencil of Thing One . . . or is it Thing Two? The stencil depicts the characters’ face, and provides a good foundation for where their hair will go when you’re ready to Doodle it into existence. Make sure you have your 3Doodler Start Pen and Eco-Plastic at the ready.
2 Doodle the head and face
Trace the stencil with your 3Doodler Start pen. As you can see, we used white plastic for the face, along with a black outline to best resemble Thing One and Thing Two as they are depicted in The Cat in the Hat. You can start with those colors, or you can choose your own -- the more creative the better.
Do your best to keep the characters’ head and face smooth, as we want the focus of the design to be on the contrasting hair!
3 Doodle some hair
While you are working from the stencil, remember to Doodle in some hair. This will serve as a nice foundation for the crazy hair you are about to create.
4 Peel your design off of the stencil
Carefully peel your character off of the stencil after it has hardened.
5 Use your imagination to draw crazy hair!
Use your 3Doodler Start Pen to see how crazy you can make your characters’ hairstyles. Can you make them tall? Wide? Three-dimensional? Sharp? Curvy? Colorful? You are limited only by your imagination. Show us your wild side!
