Glitter printing at Rawlins after school club
For our last session before Christmas we decided to make a real mess of the art room and put into practice a fantastically Christmassy activity- glitter printing. The technique involves block printing with water based printing ink onto a variety of surfaces and quickly sprinkling glitter and/or white sand onto the ink while it's wet. This causes the glitter and/or sand to stick and gives a very effective result. Try this with potato prints and acrylic paint if you don't have the equipment I have suggested.
We made Christmas cards, gift tags and gift boxes!
