Jabba the Hutt Mixed Media Art

Jabba the Hutt Mixed Media

Jabba the Hutt may be a slimy piece of worm-ridden filth, to quote one beloved scoundrel, but that doesn’t mean we can’t make a fun art project out of him. Your kids can put together the galactic gangster with paper and a watercolor background to make a unique piece of Star Wars art.

What You Need

  • Watercolor paper
  • Watercolors
  • Salt
  • Newspaper
  • Brown construction paper
  • Black marker
  • Glue stick
  • Scissors
  • Pencil

Get Started!

Begin by painting the background of Jabba’s Palace with brown and green watercolors.

Blend them together and cover most of the paper–the bottom will be covered, so you can leave that part white.

Sprinkle salt on the wet paint to add texture to the painting. Set aside to dry.

Next, draw an eye shape on the brown construction paper. Cut it out.

Trace the eye as a template on the brown construction paper, and cut it out as well.

Draw a tongue shape on the brown construction paper and cut it out.

Use the black marker to draw Jabba’s pupils and a line on his tongue.

Next, brush the salt off the dried watercolor painting.

Trace the painting on the newspaper so you know how wide it is, and then draw a Jabba shape. Cut out the Jabba shape from the newspaper.

It’s time to put it all together! Glue Jabba’s body to the watercolor paper, and then the eyes.

Draw two slits for the nose, and a long line for the mouth. Glue the tongue, and your Jabba portrait is complete!
