…..and sometime "big kids" too!

Students drew a simple picture which was traced onto a piece of glass with black Elmer’s glue. I learned the hard way, not all glue mixes well with acrylic paint but I know now, Elmer’s glue does. Once traced they were left to dry until we met again the following week.  Now we mixed equal amounts of clear Elmer’s glue with acrylic color of the students choice and painted onto the glass.  There were a few streaks but that just added to the interest and in some cases added some nice texture.  Once dry, the glass was inserted back into the frame and hung on our board for viewing pleasure.  Simple shapes, such as from a children’s coloring book were encouraged as they were much easier to obtain a great result.  IMG_4549 IMG_4550 IMG_4551 IMG_4552 IMG_4553 IMG_4554
