Birds on background

This was a simple but fun project I did with my grade 6s. We started by filling a page using chalk pastel. We then sprayed it with fixative. We took black ink, put some drops and blew it with straws to make twigs and branches of a ‘tree’. We drew birds on paper and then traced these onto clear plastic sheets with permanent marker. I painted my two birds using different techniques. The top one I mixed ink with school glue/ wood glue and used a syringe to outline the bird with this. This made raised ‘walls’. I filled in the bird with glass glaze. (which is very runny!)The bottom one I just did using acrylic paint.img_0344
