Fifth Grade created these mixed media projects using metal tooling foil and metallic markers on black paper for the mat.  Students had to use components of composition and good design in the planning stages.  Metal repousse and chasing  is a metalworking technique in which the metal is  shaped by using tools from the top and reverse side to create a design in low relief. The students were encouraged to create a lot of texture in their piece.
