I saw a lovely blog post over at Farmama this morning, where they have made beautiful prints. My girls were keen to give this a try, so we went searching for materials around our home. We had some polystyrene in a box that our dehydrator was delivered in and we thought we would recycle it to make our prints. It worked really well too:)
Materials we used:
Ink or paint
Ink roller to roll your ink / paint
Craft knife to cut your polystyrene
First we drew our picture onto our polystyrene in pencil.
Then we took our carving tools and carved out our picture along the lines.
Roll your roller in your ink making sure it is covered completely.
Roll your ink all over your carving.
Press your polystyrene onto the card firmly. And there is your print!
These are some other prints Jenna and Erin did today.
Perfect for birthday cards etc…
