The template

Print up the template.


The three drawings

The template is a single page with three drawings on it. Easy enough!


Trace onto foam board

Ok, take that template page and lay it on your foamboard or cardboard. And trace around the pieces pressing down firmly. This embosses lines into the foamboard. This picture shows how many of each piece to trace onto foamboard.


Re draw the lines


Remove the template. There are indents in the foam board. Draw those out on your foam board.


Cut out the piece


Cut out all the pieces.


Sand the edges


The cut edges may be a bit rough. You can go ahead and sand them a bit with sand paper or emory paper.


Easy enough. Glue these pieces together. First the large piece goes on then the smaller piece just like these two pictures. Then flip it over and glue two pieces onto the other side too.

Easy Enough to Make. Now let's paint it! I have a nice technique to make it look like bone.
