I've been looking for a flat conductive surface for art projects and came across foil art. After playing a bit with paint and black markers, I have to say it's quite fun adding interests and textures to a drawing.
I'd created this by drawing on a cardstock paper and outlined with yarn to produce the embossing effect when foil is added. Most people use cardboard box and glue for tracing which requires longer drying time. Since I like things more 3 dimensional, I punched holes on the bottom two corners and added wires to have it stand. I love the billboard look. Give it a try and would love to see what you come up with!
Now comes the exciting part. When you clip the foil with alligator clips, you'll complete a circuit and trigger sound with MakeyMakey and Scratch. Scratch is a kids visual programming language, an MIT Lab initiative.
