Simple Silhouette

Capture your child's sweet face in this modern take on a classic portrait style

Simple Silhouette Mark Mantegna

  1. Photograph your child's head from the side.
  2. Enlarge the photo on your computer to a size you like, then print it in black and white. (Or you can enlarge an existing print on a copier.)
  3. Lay the image on top of a sheet of black paper. Cut around the head and shoulders, through both pieces of paper.
  4. Remove the back panel from a frame. Cover the panel with glue stick, then lay on of a piece of fabric for a background. Trim the fabric to fit the panel.
  5. Attach the silhouette to the fabric with glue stick. Reassemble the frame, and your art is ready to display.
