Presenting your Coat of Arms - 2
V. Ryan © 2006-2021
Having sketched your Coat of Arms and presented a summary of the information found on your surname - draw your design using felt pens. Then use coloured card to put together a card composite drawing. This is a drawing built up from a range of card, forming layers. Coloured pencils and felt pens are then used to add detail. Use the template below to set out your designs / drawings.
|A sample layout is seen below. The felt drawing is on the left and the card composite drawing is on the right.|
|STAGES INVOLVED IN PRODUCING THE FINAL COMPOSITE DRAWING|
|1. The eagle is drawn on red card using a pencil first and then a fine black ink pen. The white is added using tippex or white paint. This is the most difficult stage of the composite drawing.|
|2. A craft knife
is carefully used to cut out the eagle shape. Use a scissors for added
Because the eagle has been drawn on red card it may not be necessary to cut the shape out. This is because it is to be glued to a red shield.
Cutting out the shape gives a little more accuracy to the final composite drawing.
|3. Draw the shield on red card and cut it out with a scissors or a craft knife.|
|4. Position the
eagle on to the red card. Ensure that it is in the centre of the shield
and that the glue used does not spread out from underneath the eagle to
the surrounding card.
If this happens it may leave an unsightly line.
|5. Glue the shield and eagle to the base card (yellow). Ensure that the shield is in the centre of the card.|
|6. Draw the
banner on white card using a fine black pen or a colour of your choice.
Carefully cut it out using a scissors or a craft knife and glue it on the card taking care to position it carefully.
|7. The completed coat of arms is seen below. It can then be glued to the final design sheet.|
