Piece of cardboard
DESIGN A RELIEF
Markers, assorted colors
Assorted materials such as straws, bottle caps, plastic lids, string, nuts, washers, various shapes of cardboard scraps
Arrange the assorted materials on the piece of cardboard. Experiment with pattern, texture and the layering of smaller objects on top of larger objects.
GLUE YOUR DESIGN
Use glue to attach the assorted materials onto the cardboard. Set aside to dry.
Spread a thin layer of glue over the surface of your design using a brush. Cover the glued surface with a sheet of crinkled foil. Wrap the excess foil over the end of the cardboard on all four sides. Use your fingers to rub and smooth the foil.
