More Foam Printing on Fabric

Almost any styrofoam sheets, plates, etc., will work - draw images with a regular ball point pen, impressing enough for a clean design. Dilute acrylic paint to the consistency of cream, then paint the print plate. Turn it over and lower it down onto plain white cotton fabric, then rub a little. This technique gets you some artsy, imperfect, striking bits for using as focal points in collages or quilts.
