3D/2d Design

Mr. Sacco's 8th grade class created non-objective, relief foil designs that
focused on line, shape and pattern. Relief is a type of sculpture in which form
projects from a background.

Using the repousse method, students created their metal reliefs by burnishing
the metal foil on both sides. Completed foil designs were then "antiqued" using
black india ink and steel wool.

Next, students matted their artwork and were presented with the challenge
of continuing their 3-D design onto the 2-D surface of their matte using
color pencils.
