Use cardstock or heavy white paper.
In the sample above the first letter of the first name was stenciled on the page.
Use the cardboard stencils located in craft stores.
Stencil the initial with Gold or Silver crayons.
Use metallic colored crayons to fill in the inside of the letter. Leave the area around the letter untouched.
With a paint brush cover the entire piece of paper with black tempera paint. The letter will disappear under the paint.
Using paper towels wipe away the paint. The initial will “pop” through.
For this particular project we used initials but complete first names would be fun to do but a little more time consuming. Or, inspirational words can be used. But, again a little more time consuming.
