Foil Printmaking

This simple and fun project was inspired by "The Dot," a book written and illustrated by Peter Reynolds about a girl who discovers her artistic talent.


  • Foil
  • Acrylic paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Water
  • Paper
  • Cardboard square or old credit card


  1. Paint a dot on the center of the foil and then add more colors
  2. Spread the paint out in a circular motion with a cardboard square or old credit card
  3. Place paper on top of the paint and smoother over the paper with your hand

Thanks to for the idea!
