Tooling Foil Art // Art Lesson

Students recently created these amazing tooling foil art masterpieces.  We started by giving each student a piece of felt under their foil and a wooden stylus to carve lines and shapes into the tooling foil.  We then painted on a layer of quick drying acrylics and wiped off the excess.  We love tooling foil for basic drawing projects because kids of all ages can press their lines into the foil and it is a great way to capture their original drawings vs. the traditional pen & paper.  The end result was stunning – pictures don’t do them justice!

    These are lovely! Just wondering what gauge of foil you used, or if it is tooling foil? Thank you!

      We use 36 gauge aluminum tooling foil. We give students a piece of felt to put under it while they are “drawing” with a wooden stylus. Thanks!
