50 Shades of Grey
HOW TO DO IT:
- Find paper in many different shades of grey (you can find some at a paint store like Benjamin-Moore or that Pittsburg one). It doesn’t have to be fifty.
- Draw a picture (any picture, it can be as basic as a cartoon flower or as intricate as a photorealistic picture of the floorboards in your living room). Make sure to draw it in pencil and only pencil. No pen. No marker. No crayon. No colored pencil. Just a normal grey pencil will do.
- Trace the exact same design on the gray paper. Cut out a piece of it (i.e., if I had drawn a sunflower, I would trace, not copy it onto the gray paper and only cut out one petal. TIP: You can use a printer to copy the picture onto a grey paper.
- Glue the piece of paper (i.e., the grey flower petal) onto the white paper (onto the white petal. EXAMPLE: If I cut out the top petal on the grey paper, I would glue my grey petal onto the top white petal).
- Repeat with different shades of grey and different parts of your picture (i.e., the flower’s leaves, the stem, its center). You can also do this with colored paper.
