This is a super easy and fun project. It requires adult supervision.
What you will need:
- metal foil sheets (Dick Blick 12 aluminum sheets for $2.84)
- wooden styluses or pencils
- optional: cardboard frames (Dick Blick 12 white for $3.68)
Here are the aluminum 5″ x 5″ sheets
You want newspapers that are fairly thick.
Method One: Using a pencil or wood stylus press into the metal – drawing your design.
Here is a spider a student drew!
Method Two: Select leaves and sticks.
Make a pad out of paper towel. Press over the top of the aluminum sheet.
Method Three: Use a rubbing plate.
Put the rubbing plate under the aluminum sheet. Using a paper towel pad press.
Paint the white cardboard frame with watercolors.
Tape the metal art piece to the back of the frame.
Cut a piece of poster board to fit the back (to hide the ugly tape).
So much fun!
