Project Instructions

Paint Frame with Turquoise Paint. Allow to dry.

Using Tracing Paper, draw an Owl, a Leaf, a Tree Branch, a Star and a Moon with a pencil making a dark line.

Turn tracing paper over and “rub” with your finger onto Sticky Back Fun Foam. This will transfer the image from the tracing paper to the foam.

Using a slightly dull pencil and medium pressure, go back over the foam and indent the drawing lines into the foam by re-sketching over drawing lines. Deepen any details that you want to show up (ex: swirls on owl wing or vanes in leaf).

Cut out owl, leaf, branch, star and moon shapes from foam, peel off sticky back and adhere to block to create a stamp.

Using Foam brush, coat Fun Foam stamp with acrylic paint.

Press stamps onto frame to create images. Allow to dry.

Tips

Plan a bit before beginning. You will need to make sure your image will turn out the way you want, so if you want something to face left, you need to draw it facing right. Also – words will be backwards when block printing!
