I have seen these pretty foil art projects on a few children's craft blogs and wanted to give it a go for a while. I particularly love this tin folk art project by BABBLE DABBLE DO, this folk art project for kids is based on a form of Mexican folk art commonly referred to as Hojalata, the Spanish word for tin.
Begin by cutting the base out from your pie case or BBQ tray to make a flat piece of aluminum. Trim the corners as the metal can be sharp. Place a piece of flat cardboard under the aluminum (you can tape the foil to the cardboard to prevent it from curling and moving). Now begin to emboss your aluminum sheet using the end of a blunt pencil.
Once you are happy with your embossed design, turn your sheet over and begin colouring in your art work with permanent markers using the embossed relief as the boarders for the colour.
