Imperial Probe Droid Artwork

Probe Droid Art

A few different painting and paper techniques make this mixed media painting of a probe droid from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back one of a kind. Kids and grownups alike will enjoy making this snowy scene.

This artwork was inspired by this Mister Maker art project.

What You Need

  • Light blue, black (2 sheets), and white construction paper
  • White paint
  • Faux black pearl stickers (optional; black sequins or black markers will also work)
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Paint brush
  • Pencil

Get Started!

Begin by crumpling the black construction paper.

Smooth out the black construction paper so that it lays flat (but should be very wrinkled).

Next, gently paint the black construction paper so that the paint doesn’t completely cover the paper.

Let dry.

Next, use the scissors to cut at least three points out of the paper to make a mountain range.

Glue the mountains to the bottom of the light blue construction paper.

Next, rip the white paper in a thin strip along the bottom of the long side of the page.

Glue the strip on top of the mountain range to make a snowy ground.

Let the glue dry.

Next, draw an oval and rounded trapezoid (about 2.5″ in diameter) on the other sheet of black construction paper. Cut the shapes out.

Stick a faux black pearl sticker for the droid’s “eye” on the oval. (You can also glue a black sequin or just draw circles with a black marker.)

Next, cut small strips of black paper for the legs, at least 1.5″ in length. (Some can be smaller to add different length legs.)

Glue the head and body to the paper.

Next, glue the strips of paper for the “legs.” Angle them to make bends in the legs and different lengths.

Next, it’s time to splatter paint for the snow! We do this outside to keep the paint from getting on the walls and floor.

Dip the paintbrush in the white paint and flick it at the paper to create snow. It can (and will) get on the droid and background for a snowy look.

Let the paint dry, and your probe droid is complete!
