Samson and Delilah





Samson and Delilah
Judges 16


I made these figures to use for telling the story of Samson and Delilah.  I used a technique called "tissue art" to create them. I used regular tissue paper that you would use in a gift sack. I found a pattern in Corbin Hillam's book Bible Story Clip and Copy Patterns.  I just love the characters!  I used tissue paper for the clothes and shoes and used pastel chalk for the skin.  The tissue art is quick and simple - much easier than it looks here and it has such a beautiful look when it is finished.  This technique can be used for many other things including making your own cards. 

I made a video to show you the technique:





From now on, save all your tissue paper from birthday parties, Christmas, baby gifts, etc.!  You never know when it will come in handy for tissue art!
