In this lesson, Barbara Mason demonstrates the foil printing process using water-soluble ink. This guide will help school children understand printmaking with the use of aluminum foil. Textured paper, string, cardboard and other raised objects are placed onto a board and students then paint directly onto the foil with water-soluble paint or crayons. This ink is then transferred to paper for a unique and eye-catching design.
