Tied into the study of ancient Egypt,
this project calls for research of authentic
Egyptian art. Strips of paper are applied to cardboard
with a paper mache solution. Then, paint is mixed to match
papyrus colors and applied across the grain of the paper.
It gives an effect of real papyrus.
Using a combination of water color
pencils, colored pencils, water colors, and acrylic paint, the final
piece is a replica of an original Egyptian art.
