Instructions:

How to make 3D art with foamboards

Step 1: Draw your design out on a piece of a paper before you begin. You are going to want to think about how you want things to overlap in advance.

 

Step 2: Cut 5 pieces of acid-free foamboard to fit the dimensions of your frame.

 

Step 3: Draw your patterns onto your foamboard pieces, making sure that you have a variety of shapes and sizes to overlap. Draw the center opening a little larger with each foamboard sheet.

 

Step 4: One piece at a time, cut the shapes of leaves and flowers out of the foamboard from the center to the edges using a craft knife. Make sure to keep the sides of your foamboard sheet intact.

 

Step 5: Paint the foamboard pieces different hues and colours.

 

Step 6: Once the paint is dry, draw details and textures with a paint marker

 

Step 7: Arrange your foamboard pieces once they are dry and insert them into your frame. Place a solid colour piece of foamboard or cardstock at the back, secure it in place and hang it on the wall.

  • Make sure your blades are sharp and replace them when they are dull
  • Paint the sides of the foamboard if you want or leave them white
  • Spray paint the frame to coordinate with the art
