Materials and Tools:
aboriginal art books for inspiration
black fiberglass screening
brown spray paint
painter’s palette (or small plastic tray)
staple gun (or heavy-duty stapler)
1. Use reference books for ideas/inspiration to create an aboriginal design. Remove the glass from the frames and paint them brown. Let dry.
2. Cut the fiberglass screening and stretch it over one frame at a time. Pull it taut, and then staple the extra to the backside of the frame (figure A).
3. Squeeze small amounts of the chosen paint colors onto a palette. Paint the desired design onto the screen using enough paint to cover the entire surface. Let dry and hang.
