Andy Warhol Self-Portraits

Our wonderful eighth grade class is getting ready to graduate and move on to high school. We will miss them!!! But.......there is ONE more project we have to do, self-portraits!! Each student took a picture of some one in the class. The pictures were then downloaded onto a computer and edited in Photoshop. The pictures were then printed out onto white paper. The picture was then put on to a copy machine and the image was copied onto a transparency. Each student painted the back of the transparency using different colors for the hair, face and background. The end product looks like an Andy Warhol portrait. We will have these portraits hanging up in the hall. Congratulations class of 2012!

Do you need to add anything to the paint or does acrylic just work as is?
