Please go through the instructable on how to make this art work very easily

Step 1: Items Required

  • A printout of a line drawing. Here I have the picture of Mother Mary and Baby Jesus
  • A suitable cardboard
  • Synthetic Resin Adhesive
  • Aluminium foil
  • Black colored liquid Shoe Polish
  • Nail Polish of any color. I have used light green

Step 2: Glue Picture to Cardboard

  • Lay the line drawing on the cardboard
  • Trim excess from the picture as well as from the cardboard
  • Apply glue on the cardboard and stick the line drawing over it

Step 3: Apply Synthetic Resin Adhesive

  • Start from one end and apply a thick layer of Synthetic Resin Adhesive over the lines. The thicker the layer you will get good projection
  • Allow the glue to dry completely. Check with your fingers before proceeding further

Step 4: Wrap Aluminium Foil

  • Measure the Aluminium foil including for folding at the back and cut
  • Wrap the Aluminium foil over the cardboard, press and fold two adjacent edges to the back
  • With your fingers press the aluminium foil over the layers of dried glue from the folded ends
  • Once you get the proper shape of glued lines on the Aluminium foil, fold other edges at back and stick with tape

Step 5: Apply Shoe Polish and Nail Polish

  • First apply a light layer of shoe polish all over the Aluminium foil, highlighting the protruding lines
  • Then apply nails polish on the inside of line drawing with a brush
  • Wipe off excess shoe polish with a moist piece of cotton cloth

The Art piece is ready, which you can display it in your home
