Queen Amidala Footprint Painting

Using little hands and feet to make paintings isn’t a new idea, but there are very few Star Wars art projects featuring Queen Amidala—so here’s a unique one! Re-create Queen Amidala’s royal look from The Phantom Menace with just washable paint and adorable tiny toes.

What You Need

  • Construction paper
  • Red washable paint
  • White or light peach washable paint
  • Brown washable paint
  • Golden yellow washable paint
  • Black Sharpie marker

Get Started!

Begin by painting the most of the sole of the foot red. (Stop before you reach the heel.) This might be a very ticklish process!

Use the white or light peach to paint a circle on the heel for Queen Amidala’s face.

Alternate painting the toes red and gold.

Step on the middle of the paper and press the foot firmly from toes to heel. Lift off the paper and wash those toesies.

Let the paint dry. Next, dip a finger in brown paint, and make the roll of hair around Amidala’s face. Leave a spot in the middle.

Next, dip a finger in the golden yellow paint and press in the middle of Amidala’s forehead to create her headpiece. (If you’re a stickler for accuracy, you can also use the golden yellow paint to make the two sides of the headpiece on both sides of her face.)

Let the hair and headpiece dry.

Next, dip the non-brush end of a small paintbrush in the red paint to use it as a stamp. Stamp a small circle for the jewel in the headpiece.

Next, stamp the two small makeup circles on Amidala’s cheeks.

Use the black Sharpie or a black pen to draw Queen Amidala’s eyes, eyebrows, nose, and mouth.

Finally, dip the end of the paintbrush in the red paint again, and make the lipstick design for her mouth with a small dot on her bottom lip.
