past auction items



copper patina'd madala examples



class art project

It's that time of year again, the school auction......class art projects need to be made and auctioned off. This year the 5th graders are going to be learning about Mandalas. They are going to draw their own mandala and trace it onto a square of copper to emboss. The embossed piece will be brushed with a sulfer product to cause a patina. The patina'd Mandalas will then be attatched to a pine frame that will become a border for a chalkboard. This should be a little more hands on for the 5th graders and also appeal to some of the kids who don't feel like they are the best drawers. These projects are usually time consuming but I must confess, I just love doing them!
