Repousse Box design
8th grade art students created these
recycled cigar boxes turned into Repousse Boxes.
Cigar boxes were first painted
with black gesso, then foil designs were attached.
Students were then asked to
transition their foil designs to the surface of the newly
painted box. Color
contrast and unity were emphasized in their designs.
Medium: black gesso, tooling foil, gel
pens, color pencils.
