You are an Eco-True artist! By recycling a piece of styrofoam you can create a simple block print to make greeting cards, gift tags, or even a piece of art worth framing!
- Recycled Piece Of Styrofoam (deli tray, plate, food container, etc.)
- Paint Roller
- Paint (block printing paint works best, but whatever ya got)
- Paper To Print On
Trace your paper on the Styrofoam to know how much space you’re working with.
Draw your design on the Styrofoam. Make sure to push hard enough to make a good dent, so the print will work properly.
REMEMBER, if you’re writing words, make sure to write them backwards so they’ll print correctly.
Cut out your rectangle of Styrofoam.
Roll your ink on the Styrofoam.
Don't over do it, you don't want your ink getting into the dents for your design.
Put your paper on the Styrofoam, and run your hands over it evenly using consistent pressure to ensure the ink transfers to the paper.
Peel off the paper to reveal your art. Go YOU!
