Vegetable Printing -Potatoes

Print Making
For Making Potato Prints
You'll need
Poster paint - different colours
1. Cut potatoes in half or thirds.
2. Draw desired design onto potato with the pencil.
3. Young children can carve their whole design with the pencil but if more detail is preferred, an adult needs to cut around the pencil outline.
4. Place paint in tray or paper plate in a thin layer.5. Press potato design into paint and firmly press onto paper for impression.Don't have Paint ????Coloring with marker onto the potato works as well although it produces a lighter effect.
Mom's Tip: Practice a couple of times to get the feel for how much paint you want on your print.To accomplish a textured effect try letting layers dry and adding prints on top in different colors.
