Bubble wrap prints of a corn cob

Bubble wrap prints of a corn cob


Hi, this is Joelle Meijer. Here is a project to paint a corncob with
a simple technique! Take the pattern of the corncob in the supporting
document and cut it out. Next, place the pattern of the com on the
flat side of a sheet of bubble wrap. With an indelible felt tip pen, trace the
outline of the cob. Cut out the cob with scissors. Brush yellow paint in a Styrofoam tray and place the bubble wrap pattern on the paint. The bubbles must be turned toward the paint. You can also paint the bubbles directly with
a brush. When you are satisfied, place the cob on a
sheet of construction paper with the bubble side facing the sheet of paper. Press everywhere and then remove the plastic
cob. You get a nice impression of a corncob showing
neatly all the kernels. Instead of using only yellow paint, you can
also use other colours such as brown and burgundy to represent a
decorative corncob. Proceed as in the first example, brushing
the whole cob with yellow paint and then add touches of brown and burgundy
before printing the cob. While the paint dries, cut out the pattern
of the leaves of the ear of corn. Fold a sheet of green construction paper in
half and trace the leaf pattern. Cut the two layers of construction paper to
obtain two leaves. Put a little white glue in the bottom of the
corncob and glue the leaves in place on either side
of the cob. In the document you will also find a smaller
model of corncob and leaf. This is easier to handle for younger children. This project is an ideal project to do in
the fall, which is the harvest season. Do not hesitate to share your corncob pictures
