when I was in the first grade, I did this and everyone thought that I was the best artist in the world.

You can also use this technique with a piece of drawing charcol,a crayon. It gets really interesting when you do it on older objects like a tombstone. You can often see or pick up things that are obscured to the eye by lichen or a pastel stick,etc. I understand that in much of England and Europe this is very popular, but you have to get permission, because so many are doing it.

Yes, there are numerous ornamental brasses in churches, decorating commemorative plaques and stones, which have been worn smooth by years of rubbing. The National Railway Museum in York has a display of name-plates from old steam engines, and small cast railway signs, along with a pile of paper and a box of crayons for people to do rubbings.

Good first try.

You'll need to get a camera that can do macro shots, of course, but keep at it.

Oh, and this is a rubbing, not a print.

Did someone say "print"?


I was going to say exactly what you said, but you beat me to it, so I thought I'd spam a bit.
