How to Use Fossil 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 fossil shape!
Use the fossil rubbing plates on the Educational Light Cube for creating your drawings and rubbings. Try your 3D glue fossils on the light cube too! By adding sparkles or glitter to your 3D glue fossils will make them really pop!
