Today you get two Chocolate Muffin ideas for the price of one!!! I have a post today featured on Moms by heart that is part of their Summer Staycation Series of activities to do with kids! My post featured on Moms by heart is titled Salty Watercolor and Glue Paintings. My post on the blog today is about Glue today too! We made Glue Prints!
For this project you'll need:
Matte board or scrap cardboard
To begin you need to get some thick cardboard. We used some scrap matte board which you can easily get a frame shop. You could use cardboard from cereal or pizza boxes too! Now grab some white glue and draw with the glue to create a picture. Cassie did about three glue drawings of people.
Here is one of Cassie's finished glue drawings! I just adore it! ***Now--- you need to let the glue drawing dry for at least over night. Thicker area may take longer!***
After the glue drawing is dry, you will need to paint over the glue drawing with tempera paint. You could use a roller, but we chose to try it tis way. A roller works better with thicker paint like acrylic or printmaking ink.
Once we covered the cardboard and glue, I carefully took a paper and put it on top of the painted glue drawing. Then Cassie used her hands to rub all over the paper so that the paint would print.
Carefully peel back the paper and you have a print! This print was a little light, but the whole idea of printmaking is to print many times and experiment---so that is what we did!
The next print was done in blue. A little darker!
Next time we used both magenta and blue to create purple.
I liked this print because not only did the colors mix to make purple, but also you could still see other layers of the separate colors. It gave it more dimension!
We printed a bunch as yo can see! It was fun to see how they came out so differently!
Have Fun! Experimenting is the key to successful prints!
