Soft Printing Butterfly Sheets

Download Activity Guide
  • Step 1Protect your work area with a splash mat. Prepare your materials and make sure you have a pencil, paint, foam rollers and paper on hand.
  • Step 2Before you begin printing, colour in a piece of paper using coloured crayons. Create a rainbow design to be the base of your print. Parts of the colour will show through in your print.
  • Step 3Sketch out your design onto a piece of paper before you start to decorate your soft printing sheet. Once you have a design, transfer it onto your soft printing sheet with a pencil. This is not essential, but helps with planning your design.
  • Step 4Using a pencil press firmly on the areas that you don’t want the paint to go.
  • Step 5Once the design has been pressed into the soft printing sheet it is ready to be covered with paint. We recommend you prepare your paint by pouring a small amount onto a paper plate. Coat your foam roller in paint by rolling it over the paper plate.
  • Step 6Roll the foam roller on top of the soft printing sheet design, covering it evenly with paint.
  • Step 7Place your soft printing sheet on top of a piece of paper and rub gently to transfer the design on to the paper. Make as many prints as you like, each print will come out slightly different according to how much paint is on the soft printing sheet, how the paint was applied, smooth or rough and if the paint was applied evenly.
