ATC's with Colored Glue

ATC's are "Artist Trading Cards" and they are perfect for students to make if they finish their art project before the rest of the class. There are no rules for ATC's except for their size. A true ATC is 2 1/2" x 3 1/2", just like baseball cards.

These ATC's were made with colored glue. Tempera paint was added to the glue to give it color.

Wet ATC's
Dry ATC's
After they've dried. The glossy color fades and the glue tends to run together, but their touchable appeal is fun. (These will be flattened under a big book after one more day of drying!)

The wet glue looks like icing sugar on cookies. Unfortunately it dries flat.
On the other hand, you COULD use icing sugar. After it dries, it will stay good for centuries.
