Mosaic and wax rubbing Art challenge.
Make a mosaic and then have a go at creating more artwork through mosaic collage and wax rubbing to finish. Be observant. It's quick!
Worry not. Miss Lewis has broken it down below: 1. Design your idea by sketching it out. 2. Cut out paper/card/scraps of material that are thinner than a pound coin. 3. Stick them down to bring your design to life. 4. Get a piece of paper and a crayon or pencil or wax candle. 5. Rub your crayon/pencil/wax over the paper on top of your creation. 6. You can stick with the rubbing, add to it or paint over the wax/crayon and see what happens. Good Luck!
