Viking Ships, 5th Grade

 These Viking Ships were made by my fifth graders.  My students used tooling foil and a wooden stylus to create an embossed Viking ship. When this was finished, students added black paint, which was gently rubbed off to give it an old antique look.
I think these turned out very nice.

    These look fabulous! Love that students can include textures for waves and sky. The student signature looks good in foil as well. The metallic paint border ties it all together. Pinned it!

  2. These are so inspiring. I am frustrated though. I am reluctant to pay heaps for proper art foil and can't find an alternative. I am in New Zealand. I'll keep looking as I am keen to try this. Thanks.

    1. You are right, art foil is expensive. That is why I cut it into such small pieces.
