Fifth Grade artists learned about metal repousse, the ancient art of embossing or pressing shapes into metal.
After embossing their designs, they wiped India Ink on the surface to bring out the textures and patterns.
They finished their piece by extending their patterns from the foil onto black paper.
Some students preferred the shiny surface instead of their india ink side…they chose which side to display.
Thanks to the March 1999 Arts And Activities magazine for this project idea.
