Hi Anne C-H,
My fifth graders did Olympic winners' medallions using tooling
foil. I took pictures (b & w) of their profiles ahead of time. We studied
the designs of Ancient Greek coins. They tooled their self portraits in
profile view on the foil, antiqued them with india ink (burnish highlights
with steel wool)then glued them to cardboard with a felt backing. We put
some yarn edging around the sharp edges of the foil and added yarn for
making the medallion into a necklace.

With the presedential election and the olympics coming up----seems like
there is the potential for some interesting art. Anybody have projects
along those lines?
