New fun Print

So the latest thing is to make prints using foam trays. Yes, the kind you get when you get fruit, or meat. Who knew?? You use a pencil, seems the best, the other sharp instruments ripped the foam. Then using a water based ink, I used acrylic paint on this one, you make your image. Since I do Labs that is what I tried. Marking your paper helps you do multiple colors on your print.

So..this is my first foam print!! More to come, a little larger when I get larger trays. The image is floated on a 7" x 5" dark blue suede mat and can be easily framed.

How do you do this?? Does the pencil make a raised surface on the opposite side of the tray that you then 'ink' ? Great result!

Hi Liz,
No the try is thick. You do the pencil on top and it leaves the indentation. You put the ink right on that. Very fun!!!
