I recently did a successful repousee project that is very similar to the one
described with the extension around the border. My sixth graders were
instructed to create patterns, designs, no words, so scenes...although a few
ventured into that territory..and, well, they were fabulous. After creating
the initial repousee they worked on the other side and counter reposee to
really PUNCH out some areas and create variety. Afterwards they picked a
favorite side and hot glued it to a black piece of paper where we extended
the lines inside the design out onto the paper and added color. The results
were very striking. I think it was all in School Arts a while back.
