Pulling the Print

A Styrofoam print...an owl. 

The paint and the brayer

The block is "inked" and ready to print

This is the black and white print!

Samuel pulling his print..it's a rattlesnake

And Kate pulling hers..a parrot

We started our children's art classes this week.  Our first
project was printing a Styrofoam block.  They selected which design
they wanted to draw onto their Styrofoam.  Then they
drew the lines with a pencil, and pushed down to make
indentions or grooves.  We inked the block with some
black paint and the brayer, rolling the paint onto the surface.
We placed the white paper over the block, and
rubbed the surface until all the paint had transferred.
And then the exciting part: pulling the print away from the
block, and seeing it for the first time!  They drew a parrot,
a snake, a flower, an alligator, and a deer...fun!
