Well, I’m finally getting around to posting part two of my recent craft day!

The second part of my craft day extravaganza had to do with printing. What I did is sort of like really cheap, very amateur block printing, but it is fun, easy, and creates some fun art!

So, here is what you will need:


A pencil

Craft paint

Paint brushes



First, draw your scene in pencil on the styrofoam. The styrofoam should be soft enough that you shouldn’t have to press too hard to make a depression.

Next, paint the styrofoam. Place the paper on top of the foam, and press (with either your hands, or a rolling-pin).

I made two different prints. The first was a bit more complicated, since it is larger and I used multiple colors of paint, while the second is smaller and is in only one color.

Here is the second one:


A fun, quick project, and I got some cheap art to frame and put on my wall 🙂 I’m not much of an artist so I imagine if someone truly artistic were to try this, it would turn out even better!
