A wonderfully versatile set of snowflake rubbing plates in the shape of 6 authentic snowflakes. 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! Try this
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, glitter or fake snow…
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 snowflake!
Use the plates on the Light Cube
Use the plates for drawing and rubbing on top of the Light Cube.
Lay the 3D glue snowflakes on the Light Cube (see above) to explore the colours and effects!
