Marble Art Portraits

Over the last couple of weeks we have been working on our mixed media portraits. We have learnt new art techniques and shown perseverance because it has taken a long time.

Michaela will explain the process of making the marble background.

"First you take a tin foil tray and then you spray shaving foam all over it, then you put some paint on the shaving cream and swirl it around"

"Next you place a piece of paper on the foam and paint and press down firmly but gently at the same time"

"Next you lift it off and then finally you use a ruler to scrape off the shaving foam - it leaves a beautiful pattern on the paper"

"We drew ourselves using wax crayons and blended our faces and hair. The last thing we did was write our names. Now our portraits are finished"
