I love and adore your beards... and thanks for the idea to use styrofoam!  Free(ish) craft supplies are the best!

I love the prints, but I love the inked up originals even more. They would be very cool in a frame by themselves

I learned how to do that in high school art actually. We just drew on them, pressing hard, with a pen. It's a really easy technique that you can get some really cool prints out of, as you've totally shown us.

These are amazing!  I did something like this in my third grade art class, except we used our old styrofoam lunch trays and they were not nearly as nice.  I really love the beards and mustaches.    Smiley

i was just thinking that this would be a great class project for kids. i remember doing lino cuts and they took an age- this would appeal ot a far wider range of ages, and yet they look sophisticated enough to hang on an adult's wall. i hope a crafty teacher see this thread  Cheesy

I love the wolf and the heart. Too bad I don't usually get styrofoam, but I guess I could wash and reuse take-out containers whenever I have those.

PS I saw this on CRAFT Magazine's blog.

PPS Not sure about elsewhere, but I know in the US grocery stores usually have a recycling container for styrofoam from produce and egg cartons. You can't recycle styrofoam from meat, but you could clean them at home for this craft. Oh the ideas...
