Step-by-step guide

Using different shaped cardboard boxes, mark out a skyline. Simply draw around the boxes with chalk to create the building shapes.


Step 3 

Seal off the edges using masking tape.

Step 4

Apply a coat of background colour over the edge of the masking tape (inside the area you’ll be painting black) and allow to dry.


Step 5

Fill in your skyline, from top to bottom, using black paint on a small roller. When the paint has fully dried, carefully remove the masking tape.


Step 6

Create yellow windows with a potato stamp. Simply cut a square or oblong shape out of a potato to create the stamp.


Step 7

Brush yellow paint onto the face of the potato square and dab it on to the black buildings.


Step 8

Create a signal light using something round, a paint tin is ideal. Draw around the shape with chalk then use two pieces of masking tape, either side of the circle, to make the beam of light.


Step 9

Paint the beam with yellow paint and paint the circle with white. You might need to use a couple of coats.


Step 10

Use a fine brush and black paint to personalise the light with your little hero’s initials.
