Re: relief sculptures

I have done this using Celtic designs--the students work small--cut
cardboard support cards--coat with a thick layer of Elmer's glue, cover
with aluminum foil and put their design on top(already drawn to size) and
trace. Then they push down the deep areas. The glue squishes around
underneath and will support the high places when it dries. The project
must be done before the glue dries. The students will poke through the
foil in places, but it's not really a problem. When dry coat with India
ink--wipe lightly with a tissue. When dry, buff with steel wool. They
look good and the kids like them and the good thing is that it is made
with cheap, commonly available materials, but if you order the tooling
aluminum rolls (from most catalogs) the
foil is much thicker and stronger and designs can be repoussed and look
so much better.
