8,000 patients last year and the number of people seeking health care
continues to grow.

sequins or some kind of do-dads to decorate with . optional
I started with a 9 x12 board. You can use stretch canvas board or any kind of 9x12 flat surface. Make a template for multiple butterfly projects. Draw or print a large butterfly on a piece of paper. Cut it out, and trace it on the canvas board. Next, trace your butterfly with hot glue.
(I had a art work-shop for small kids, I prepped this part in advance.)
Now using Glue or Mod Podge, paint the surface of the butterfly only. Then place a piece of foil over the butterfly. Starting from the center,press foil onto the butterfly so the foil now has a embossed effect. Now your ready to trim your foil from around the butterfly.
Using oil pastel or shoe polish, gently rub the surface of the foil. This allows the acrylic to adhere better to the foil.
Your ready to paint!
When your done painting, I used a sanding block to lightly rub the raised foil areas of the butterfly. Basically rubbing off some of the paint from the raised areas so the foil shows.
Take a wad of foil and make the body of the butterfly. see samples.
Decorate with your choice of embellishments!
Kids still learning to control the flow of glue? No worries it will dry clear :)
