Students will use cardboard and aluminum foil to make relief sculptures.
What You Need:
- 20″X20″ piece of cardboard
- paper of various thicknesses
- aluminum foil
- ink or magic markers
- scissors or knives for cutting
What You Do:
- Cut out shapes using paper of varying thicknesses and glue down to a 20″ x 20″ piece of cardboard. I suggest overlapping and stacking the paper shapes. (The images show a circle with triangles and other shapes glued on to form a sun pattern).
- Make a watered-down glue mixture and brush mixture over cardboard and paper shapes, be sure glue holding down paper shapes in dry first.
- After applying glue mixture, cover the surface with aluminum foil, big enough to wrap an inch or two around all sides of the cardboard.
- Press foil down, shiny side up, so that you can see the pattern created by the paper shapes.
- Then brush on the ink OR color with markers, and let dry.
