Aluminum relief Alamo's

I am cleaning up my hard drive and came across photo's of my favorite lesson that I have created. The 4th grader's draw a contour drawing of the facade of the Alamo, tape it on an 18 gauge aluminum sheet and transfer with ball point pin. We tool it again after the drawing is transfered. The final step it so trim the top of the facade and blacken with india ink and soap. Their favorite part is to buff with steel wool!!



  1. Please talk to me about these painted frames! Are they located in your room? They are so neat!!

  2. They were painted in our school main hall by a muralist! I love them!
