Symmetrical Decorative Vases

Symmetry+gold+vase-1024x1013Squares of wax paper from Smart and Final worked great for this symmetrical project. The paper is thin enough to see through, yet strong enough to cover with paint. 

1. Fold wax paper in half. Draw half of a vase and flowers, facing the fold of the paper. Trace art with a black Sharpie marker.
2. Flip the folded paper over and trace the other side. When opened, there should be a symmetrical art.
3. Paint the art with gold and silver tempera paint. Let dry.
4. Students trace the lines one last time with a black chisel tip Sharpie marker to make them very black. If you display the art hanging from a string, it will have a very light weight  and iridescent look to it.
