Gold tempera paint makes King Tut look extra special.
1. Students fold the paper in half vertically so that the face may be centered.They draw a large “U” in the middle that is centered on the fold. A line closes the top, and another parallel line is added below.
2. Facial features are added as shown.
3. Add neck lines below the head, and a headpiece that curves in at the bottom.
4. Stripes are added to the headpiece. Encourage the students to draw one side and then do their best to make a symmetrical copy on the other. Sharpie markers are used to trace all the lines. The gold tempera paint is very transparent and can just be painted over the lines. I gave the students a choice of painting the alternate stripes in either red or blue or purple.
