Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Get the Goods
ok for this you will need a (Free) program called "Ghost Mouse 2.0" if you have it great, if you do not, i added it to my server (I have a very low bandwidth count, so if it says i have exceeded it, just use google) but its here anyway: http://www.tyler.f-sw.com/gmouse.html
Step 2: Get a Pic
Locate a picture you would like to draw/duplicate in this case it will be a picture of a skull.
Step 3: Trace
now, open Ghost Mouse, and open you picture in your favorite image viewer (Windows Fax Viewer works fine). click record on ghost mouse, and trace the edges of your image, remember to click (and hold) where you want it to draw. where ever you are not clicking it will not draw a line. when you are done click stop on ghost mouse (ghost mouse has a time limit to the time you can record, but its pretty long)
Step 4: Drawing
Open up your favorite image editor/drawing tool (MS Paint works fine) and pick your background color (with the bucket) then take out the pencil and choose your color. In ghost mouse, go to File->Options and enable "Playback Speed Adjust" and put it as high as you can. click play and watch it draw the image.
Note: Sometimes it will go out of the drawing boundaries, try moving stuff around (EX: the color box) so it will increase the drawing boundaries.
Another Note: while its drawing you can shake the mouse a bit to create spike lines on the drawing, this looks cool in some images.
