Art Lesson, Mixed Media Art

This project is for adults 18 yrs or older!

Supplies needed:
8" x 10" or 9" x 12" sheet of cardboard
enough aluminum foil to completely cover the cardboard
Black water based craft paint
other assorted colors of craft paint
paper towel
paint brush(s)
craft glue stick
rubber gloves

1st smash your aluminum foil into a ball. Then carefully unroll it...flattening it out...but leaving the wrinkles. Next completely cover the cardboard with your aluminum foil, and glue it into place. Now paint the aluminum foil completely black. Then using paper towels...rub off most of the black paint (while wearing your rubber gloves)....leaving the paint in the wrinkles and creases of the foil. Allow this to completely dry. The final step is to paint your masterpiece on top of the foil. Enjoy!
