I made the leaves and petals and stamped a sunflower with them, which Carys coloured in. Ffion had a go at making her own sunflower.
The cool thing about stamping the letters in negative was that the kids could colour them in with pencils after.
Okay friends, here is MY attempt at this…
I got the letters and lots of cool textures ready and told the kids how we were going to make our stamps, went over the lesson and found that my ink pads were all dried out.
Not to fret, I poured some india ink on each one. That is how art teachers have to improvise right?
Well my next step was the clay….hmmm, surprise!!, the clay is gone!! I guess the summer school or after school art kids used it…so at least I have some of this obscure weird crayola wet set clay that is moss green, that should work.
Well…our stampers weren’t quite as pretty as hers, lets put it that way. We had plenty of interesting textures, but I think I will have to buy some plasticine clay for next time!!
Do you hate these silly bands like me?
