Experimenting With Leaves
This is an extension of our first attempt at foil relief art. You’ll find full instructions there. We had a lot of absences so we needed a quick bridging project. I set the students who had finished the first foil project loose in the schoolyard to find leaves for a fast second project.
The secret to leaves is applying a nice amount of glue to the backside of the leaves and spraying a good solid coat of spray adhesive on the backside of the aluminum. This way, putting it all together, it forms a firm sandwich. You will need to hold the leaf down for a bit so the glue has time to set.
