My Take on Craft: Metal Embossed Tiles

This June workshop happened to also be on my birthday, how cool was that? However lots of crafting to be done before indulging in a slice.

5th grade copper etchings of "Northwest Wonders".  Each scene is landmark or symbol of the NW. Technique is copper repousse.  Some info on Dick Blick about process.  Could also repousse the class/school name/year as the middle tile.  This project from alcottauction.com

the eye project by t i m o, via Flickr: would be a wonderful project for seniors/ap students to leave behind for future classes/generations

A North Park University community art project. Participants made images of fellow North Park students (or in a couple cases, faculty). 67 blocks total, mounted on a gold-leafed tondo.

5th graders auction project. Isn't it a masterpiece? We used the theme "the sun, the moon & the stars" . Each student created a design & embossed the design on a piece of thin copper. They then painted vaseline wherever they wanted the design to shine. Each student used liver of sulphur to patina the metal. The final step was buffing the metal with ultra fine steel wool.

use patterns and overlapping images; leaves, buttons, other patterns. Tool in copper or aluminum foil and finish off with india ink or black tempera buffed into the recess.

Fun kid project (or crafty adult). Three-dimensional designs using recycled cardboard, masking tape and reused newspaper. This post shows the 5th graders doing the entire project themselves (supervision with the craft knife of course).
