I saw an idea at a recent k-12 art exhibit in my district that maybe you
can spin off of. It was a 5th grader's copper repoussé of an underwater
scene - fish, seaweed, coral – but everything was cropped. The copper
was mounted on black mat board with about a 2-inch border. Then the
design tooled into the copper was extended onto the black mat board with
prismacolors. Somehow the copper was also colored (perm. markers maybe?)
using similar colors to the prismas. It was quit striking.
