This week at Studio Sprout, we were soaking up the mid-winter sunshine, and thought our art should too! We made tissue paper and glue Suncatchers.
Materials:

  • Transparency Sheets
  • No bleed Tissue Paper
  • Clear Glue
  • (Recommended) A Tray, for the glue mess

We uses the transparency to “build upon” and the trays are to  contain the mess. First, we had students liberally apply a layer of glue with a paintbrush. It’s nice to note that the kiddos do not have to paint the glue to the edge; the final project has an organic shape.

The students were encouraged to experiment with texture and see what the tissue paper could do. Some layered it flat as well as crumpling.

In the master’s class, we asked the students to think about creating a picture rather than an abstract collage.

The final step is going over the tissue paper with another generous wash of glue then simply let dry and peel!

These beauties!

A few pieces of double sided table will adhere your suncatcher to any window.
