Tooling Foil Silberzwieg Portraits

We have loved these Sandra Silberzwieg portraits so much and last week we came up with an idea to try them on tooling foil!  Students colored them with Sharpies, and then we mounted them on black poster board.

Sandra Silberzwieg is a contemporary Canadian artist that has been inspiring us for quite some time. We were so excited to do this project with our class one week. Feast your eyes on THESE beauties.  I swear these are so fun, I even have some ideas for yet some different materials.

    Loved the project. What type and gauge foil did you use? Where did you order it from?
    Thank you!

      Thank you Cindi! We use 36 gauge tooling foil – we get it from Dick Blick. We use it for a LOT of projects around here – we just posted a blog about an outdoor event we did where kids made hundreds of little butterflies & dragonflies if you want to check that out! Thanks! ~Jennifer
