A wonderfully versatile set of rubbing plates in the shape of 6 dinosaur skeleton shapes. 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.
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, hilight areas with paint, glue on some “grass”…
Turn the plate over and fill the back of the embossed image with white glue mixed with food colouring. When dry lift out a 3D dinosaur skeleton!
Use the plates on the Light Cube for drawing and rubbing as well as the 3D glue skeletons!
