Back to School Circle Print Apple Art: Step by Step Tutorial
Printing the Apple Template
Download and print the Apple Template from the Arty Crafty Kids members area.
Before hitting PRINT, select FIT TO PAGE.
The template can be downloaded onto good quality paper or card stock.
If you opt for cardstock, remember to check your printer settings for a recommended weight. Most printers prefer card stock less than 220gsm.
Circle Printing with a Paper Roll
Step 1: Spread the black paint across the plate to create an even layer and dip one end of the paper tube into the paint. Give the tube a few twists to ensure the edges are covered.
Step 2: Starting from the top or bottom corner of the apple template, firmly press the painted edge of the paper roll down to create the first print.
Step 3: Following the apple edges and moving across the template, overlap the circle prints.
Step 4: Continue printing until the apple is full!
Step 5: Allow the black paint to dry before adding paint.
To speed up the process, Arty Crafty Kids could simply trace round the tube with a black crayon.
Step 6: In this example, we’ve painted our apple in different shades of red, yellow and green – colours typically associated with apples!
This is a fun way for Arty Crafty Kids to explore colour and create light and dark tones.
How many shades of red, yellow and green can they make?
