What are Animal Tracks Rubbing Plates
This set of animal tracks rubbing plates set includes 16 animal tracks of many common species. As you might remember from childhood simply place a piece of paper over the embossed plastic sheet and rub all over with a crayon (held flat) and watch the image appear.
How to Use Animal Tracks Rubbing Plates
But don’t stop there! Take it a step further:
Try using chalk or pastel (spray artwork afterwards with a fixative to help prevent smudging)
Try using pencil crayon or pencil
Try tracing the design first on the embossed plastic with a washable marker then apply a piece of paper on top to create a stamp
Add further details to the finished pieces by colouring with pencil crayons or highlight areas with paint
Turn the plate over and fill the back of the image with white glue mixed with food colouring or acrylic paint. When dry lift out a 3D animal tracks shape!
Use the animal tracks rubbing plates on the Educational Light Cube for creating your drawings and rubbings. But also try how the 3D animal tracks shapes made out of glue look on the light cube. The addition of sparkles or glitter in your 3D textures makes them pop on the light cube!
