    Craft Idea | Aluminum foil over dried, raised glue and wiped down with shoe polish

  • Stacie Allen

    Foil Drawings -- using cardboard, aluminum foil, black shoe polish, Aleen's Tacky Glue, glue stick, dull pencil, cotton swab and an old rag or paper towels. Easy and cute! I can see making several and grouping them to look like the old tin ceiling tiles!

Alum foil over dried, raised glue and wiped down with shoe polish. Imagine doing this with one of our word art designs. Could be cool! :)

Must try this technique. Glue makes the design, aluminum foil over top, shoe polish over that to accentuate the design.

    You can also substitute India ink for the shoe glue. The smaller the patterns you use the better it turns out.

    I like the shoe polish better than India Ink because it's so easy to apply and can be buffed to a nice patina. I think the ink dries to a duller finish. :D

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!
