Tin Foil Line Relief


7th graders have been working on a low relief sculptural project using tin foil, yarn and cardboard. We stressed the idea of varied line and spent a day discovering color schemes such as monochromatic, analogous, complementary and triadic and how limited color can affect our artwork. Colored Sharpies were used to fill in the foil areas between the yarn sections, while sandpaper and Rub n' Buff were used to slightly age our projects. 

The results are something between stain glass and closinae. Art on a budget!

  3. Love the "quilted" look of these together. What the process after the flat work was finished to mount them and give them "plump" 3-D look on each.

  4. Do you have to use an adhesive when you wrap the foil onto the yarn-covered cardboard?
