To make Anthro-Inspired Collage Art Plates, you will need:
Begin by trimming off any excess border that your poster might have. Set it aside for later use.
(That paragraph was brought to you by the letter P.)
Remove the scrap pieces and you will see the impression of the whole poster comprised just of a collage of plates.
An impression of an Impressionist painting. It’s so meta.
Mark off where each plate should hang, hammer in the nails, and hang the plates on the wall.
A couple of tips to make this project go as smoothly as possible:
- You can often find printed china at thrift stores for less than a buck.
- The plates that will be totally covered by the poster can be cheap, even plastic. Mine were.
- Landscape prints work better than abstract paintings for this project. You want your eye to be able to fill in the gaps between the plates, which is easier with a landscape.
- Art posters can be found cheaply online or at craft supply stores (bring your coupon!).
