In efforts to prepare myself for an Fashion Design unit I wanted use transfer rubbings as an option for my students. I was thinking about some texture plates that I had bought for my daughter years ago, but those plates create a Barbie like figure. I wanted to represent more than Barbie in my design unit. So... I thought I would make my own.
I started by drawing figures on a manilla folder. Then I traced over them with hot glue. This was a little more difficult than I thought it would be to make sure it smooth... but it turned out OK.
I thought I would give some options for other textures to fill in the figure after the texture rubbing (as seen in the image below). I also have texture plates and I think most students used them. I think that this idea could really grow. It's a good one to have in my toolbox for future lesson.
