Transfer paper can be used to copy any image onto styrofoam. After it has been copied, it can be etched into the styrofoam with a pencil. White paint is applied onto the styrofoam and the image is transferred onto a black peice of paper. For my young students I selected and etched some familiar Australian animals such as, the gecko, a koala bear and a kangaroo. The students applied the paint and stamped it onto their piece of paper. For a bit of "pop" the student coloured the animal with chalk pastel. This idea came from the website " http://www.zartart.com.au/html/gallery.html
