Foil Relief Art

Spray Adhesive
Spray Paint - Black
Steele Wool 0000

Aluminum Foil - Heavy Duty
Foam Board (8 X 10)
Paper Towels

Be sure to do this project outside or in a well ventilated area.
Cover your work space with newspaper.

Lightly spray the adhesive onto the foam board.

Place the leaves onto the sprayed foam board vein side up.

Lightly spray the adhesive onto the foam board and the leaves.

Cut the aluminum foil slightly bigger than the foam board.  The foil needs to be big enough to fold the edges over the back of the board.

Gently press the foil onto the foam board.

Press the foil around the leaves with the paper towel.  The key word is gently, you don't want to tear the foil.

Fold the edges of the foil over the foam board.

Spray the foil with the black spray paint.

Allow the paint to dry thoroughly.

Gently burnish the leaf relief with the steel wool.

The leaf relief is ready to be displayed.
