Part 2 – Making use of the plastic bottles and other plastic materials

These are some of the plastic bottles used to create the collage.

I used orange and yellow plastic bottles to create the hair.  In the picture below, you may find how I created the curly hair by making use of tweezers, blades and zigzag scissors.  


The final results of the hair may be seen hereunder:


Other coloured plastic is used to cover the rest of the creation.  I made use of greens and blues representing the grass and the skies.  I cut out the plastic and put it in a folded cardboard and while passing the hot iron it will create bubble effect.


From transparent plastic bottles I created the turquoise water.  These were cut into square pieces and the colour was created by making use of blue and green glitter nail polishes.  


Hereunder, you may find plants, flower and leaves from my creation made from green coloured plastic bottles. 




Creating more leaves and tiny flowers from accessories and other plastic materials.
