Tin foil printing is a fun and simple process that is perfect for toddlers to teens.

We love trying our hands at different printmaking methods. Tin foil printing is an old favorite of ours. It is a great process for kids of all ages and it is a wonderful introduction for those who have never tried printmaking before. Whether your child is still finger painting or a pro at wielding a paint brush, this printmaking technique is a ton of fun and couldn’t be easier. Here is how…

My favorite crafting tool is my glue gun. I love my glue gun. There is nothing that it can’t do. I bought my daughter her first low temperature glue gun a few months ago & like her mother, she loves hers too. Obviously, it is great for gluing things together quickly, but it is also a wonderful tool for art projects. This weekend we used ours to emboss tin foil.

We cut shapes out of cardboard. My daughter wanted to make hearts, so we started with embossed hearts. We both used our glue guns to squeeze designs out onto the cardboard. The low temp guns are still hot at the tip & can burn, so use caution when operating & use your best judgment as to whether you think your child should operate one. Glue a piece of tin foil over the heart and smooth out over your design. Paint the foil around the embossing & let dry.

Next we made fish. I drew & cut out two fish shapes & drew in scales with the glue. We repeated the same steps as above.

My daughter had fun with this project & our embossings came out great. You may also try this technique using regular glue and then letting it dry overnight or by using yarn to make your designs.
