Tin Foil Art

Our class have really enjoyed our latest Art activity involving tin foil. To begin with Mrs Baldwin gave us a plastic sheet and we had to draw a design using lead pencil. We then used string and glue to stick the string along all the lines.

Once they were dry we then stuck aluminium foil over the top of our designs. We had to carefully smooth the foil over our pictures. The string left a bump to divide the sections of tin foil. Finally we used permanent markers to colour in our designs.

Mrs. Baldwin remembers doing this as a kid at school and like us, she had a lot of fun making them! They look MAGNIFICENT! We have already had a lot of comments from other visitors in our room and how clever the designs are.

You could be very creative with it. I wonder how long it took to make these art pieces it must have took a lot of time and effort to make them, Can you use pastels and normal types of writing utensels, such as markers and pencil crayons. Foil art is amazing.

    1. Hi I’m from miss baldwins class thank you for all the wonderful comments and it was only a bit hard the hardest part of it was the putting the string down and
      getting it in the right shape
      and then putting the
      foil on top .😀

  5. Hi i am from Mrs cdr’s class an I think that the tin foil art is very cool because when you try to do anything with foil it breaks. so it is amazing that you made art out of foil I am guessing that it broke lots of times but you probably kept on trying.

    My favourite part of the art activity was colouring in because you got to be creative.

    I designed flowers I designed that because I saw it as an example on the internet and I thought that it looked cooled.

    I think that we should A picture about our life because that will be cool.

  10. Hi ms baldwin
    The thing I liked about this activity was colouring in because you could chose all different colours to make it look bright. I designed the word smile in a fancy font because it made me think of all the times when I smiled. I think we should do an art activity that has patterns and lots of colour but I don’t know exactly what we should do.

  11. Dear Mrs Baldwin,

    I liked putting the string on the peace paper because you got to get your hands sticky & pick all the glue off your hands,

    I designed squiggly lines because I like worms & there squiggly,

    I want to do worm art because they are my favourite insect & I like squishy.
