This is a project we worked on this summer that would be perfect for a long winter day during break.
Block Print T-Shirts
Foam meat trays
Newspapers, pens, scissors...
We started by drawing a design on paper. When we had it just right, we placed the paper over the foam meat tray and traced over the lines.
You will get an indentation in the Styrofoam that you can see when you remove the paper.
Draw over the indentation with a pen or dull pencil to deepen the lines.( Remember, everything you draw into your design will come out backwards on the shirt!)
Roll the ink onto your foam stamp until evenly covered but not too goopy.
Place folded up newspapers inside the shirt to protect the back and place stamp onto the shirt. Press! Rub! Pound! Make sure the stamp has full contact with the shirt.
Come back tomorrow to learn how to make Snow Faces using your own shadow! (Gather up rocks, twigs, leaves, yarn, buttons, and a camera to be ready!)
