Metal part 4 - Foiling Around
Did you save some candy wrappers? Some foil liners on candy boxes? Or you can use the foils that are available for purchase at craft stores. I'm using both just so you can see that you don't HAVE to spend money to get some metal!
Today I'm going to show you the beginning of some small pieces that I will later decide how to use. One I did a while ago, kept it in a safe box so it wouldn't get messed up....but you will see that one when I show the completed steps on all of these pieces.
So let's get started.
First, pull together the foil bits you want to play with. I have some aluminium foil, come candy wrapper and some foil candy box lining, some copper foil sheets from the craft store.
Now let's see what we can do with them.
I'll take a couple of the candy wrappers first. The background one I left whole but I did hit it with a heat gun just to scrunch it a bit. The others I tore by hand because I didn't want straight edges. Then I just put them down where I thought looked cool. For these very light weight foils, glue sticks seem to hold quite well.
Because I want a difference in texture between the base and the strips, I took my small hammer and with the rounded end, tapped dents into the back side of the base piece. The strips I left smooth. For this photo, I left some of the base piece un-dimpled so you can see the effect.
Now you have some ideas and I KNOW you can come up with some more of your own. Tomorrow I will show you what I did for the next step on all these pieces. So don't forget to drop in tomorrow!
