Sixth grade just finished their sparkling foil name art projects.
- white glue (such as Elmer’s)
- foil (I love Pre cut foil sheets >)
- Sharpies or other permanent marker, black and colored
- spray glue
- small squares of felt
Next they added decorative glue/yarn lines. I sprayed the plates with spray glue and slapped on a piece of pre-cut foil.
Students carefully polished the foil with felt squares. This helps the foil adhere to the cardboard and smooths the foil. A q-tip is good for polishing tight areas. Finally, they got to the best part: coloring in with jewel-tone colored Sharpies. Black sharpie looks good too! Remind students to avoid coloring the raised yarn lines.
