Project Instructions

Have your child draw on tracing paper.

Take a dull pencil and draw over your child’s drawing making it darker.

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.

Cut foam to size you want, peel off sticky back and adhere to block to create a stamp.

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

Press onto white paper. Allow to dry.

Cut out image on white paper and adhere to colored paper for backer.

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!
