Tiger Puppet: Barefoot Books-LadyD

Tiger Puppet

What you'll need:

  • Paper lunch bag
  • Orange and black paint
  • Black marker
  • Black, white, and orange construction paper
  • Gold paint pen
  • Scissors
  • 1 black chenille stem
  • White craft glue
  • Glue stick 
  • Pattern 

How to make it:

Paint outside of paper bag with orange paint and let dry. 

On a piece of black construction paper, use the gold paint pen to draw 2 circles, about 1 inch in diameter.   

Cut around the circles, leaving a border of black paper, cut each end out to a point to resemble the almond shape of an eye. Use the pattern for the eyes as a guide. 

Dip the handle end of a paint brush into black paint and using a circular motion, at the round blacks of the eyes onto the gold. Let dry.  

When bag is dry, add tiger stripes around the bottom of the bag (the head) and down both sides. Add a nose and facial features as well. Use the pattern as inspiration for drawing on the face. Use black paint to fill in the stripes.  

While paint is drying, cut the ears and paws out of orange construction paper using the patterns. Color in the center of the ears with black marker. Use a glue stick to attach the ears to the back of the bag and the paws to the front. 

Cut two teeth from white paper and use a glue stick to attach them beneath the flap. 

Glue the eyes to the face using a glue stick. 

Cut chenille stem in to four pieces and use white craft glue to attach two to each side of the face. Let dry.

Tiger Bread

Tiger bread is made with sesame oil and with a pattern baked into the top made by painting rice paste onto the surface prior to baking. The paste dries and cracks during the baking process, creating a two-color effect similar to a tiger; hence the name. The rice paste crust also gives the bread a distinctive flavor. It has a crusty exterior, but is soft inside, making it difficult to slice. Typically, Tiger bread is made as a white bread bloomer loaf or bread roll, but the technique can be applied to any shape of loaf. In the United States it is also known as dutch crunch bread.

The bread mix is standard but the clever bit is the topping, I found one recipe for it, however it is commercial sized so you will need to proportion it down to size, this is to go with 5Kg of flour!

Rice Flour 1 1/2 Kg
Water 1 1/2 Kg
Sugar 90 grm
Vegetable Oil 75 grm
Salt 30grm
Fresh Yeast 30grm (or 1 sachet Instant)

Mix all ingredients for the Tiger Skin together till smooth - set aside
Make your usual white bread, mould or tin it, spread tiger mix evenly on top of dough, prove for about 55 minutes, bake at 200 deg for about 55 minutes or until cooked.
