Make some fantastic art work by tracing over a drawing with glue, let it dry and then cover it with foil, rub in the details and then sponge on and wipe off shoe polish. This is so cool! I can see using this as a VBS craft!

v.e.r.y.y.y.y.y cool....AND easy. Elmer's Glue poured, then dried, on to anything....tin foil over dried glue.....black shoe polish rubbed over the foil. Voila.....TIN ART!!!

Add glue on top of drawing and let dry. Use glue stick to glue down foil using a paper towl wrapped around your fingertip to smooth foil. Use a q-tip to get in close to glue line. Use pencil to add line designs and patterns in each space. Cover with a layer of shoe polish (in bottle with sponge applicator), wait a few seconds, then wipe off. Beautiful results!

This would be a great lesson for middle school.... die cut letter on chip board, draw on it with glue and wrap in aluminum foil to show the texture/design!

A very long time ago a wonderful lady, a neighbor, gave me my first Bible. The cover came off decades ago but I've kept it because it still has an intact inscription page. I think I'd like to make a 'fun' cover/binding for it and put it on display in my home.
