I have used foil similar to Alix. The students make low relief medallion
necklaces. They take shaped pieces of cardboard and draw designs on them.
Then they go over these designs with glue. When the glue dries, foil is laid
over the designs and pressed against the surface. The remaining bits of foil
are folded to the back and glued flat. Then we take tempera or ink and rub
onto the surface in layers building up as needed. It is thick foil that you
buy at the craft store not the grocery store but the heavy duty foil at the
grocery store can work in a pinch.
