Make Christmas Wrapping Paper
This is a fun printmaking project for this time of the year. I drew the little hats on a sheet of Styrofoam making sure that I could feel the actual impressions made by my pencil. I cut the hats out and rolled printing ink onto the surface with a brayer. After I turned them over on my paper to print I used the back of a spoon to rub the Styrofoam making sure the image transferred. Some of the hats I printed twice before re-inking so that I got a lighter shade of red or a "ghost print".
Sheets of Styrofoam or scratch-foam,
roll of butcher block paper.
