Printing with Recycled Styrofoam
Alright folks... ready to make some more art with me?!! I promise you it won't cost much. This simple art project uses recycled materials!
Recycled Styrofoam Prints Tutorial
Styrofoam- you can use a take-out box or other food packaging
Corrugated Cardboard or Wooden Block
Acrylic Craft Paints
Foam Brush or Paint Brush
Don't be intimidated by making a design. Even if you don't draw you can make a simple design with lines. Heck, you could even scribble on this and it would still be cool :)
Step 2: Apply Tacky Glue to the back of your Styrofoam design block and glue it to a piece of cardboard or a wooden block. Set your foam block under some heavy books to dry for about 10 minutes.
Step 3: Apply acrylic craft paint to your foam design block with a foam brush or paint brush.
Step 4: Place your painted foam block face down on paper and press it down to transfer the paint to your paper. Remove the block to see the print you created!
All that's left to do is experiment with more designs and colors. You can try painting multiple colors on your block to make some more interesting prints.
