The designs, typically linear of Juan Miro, inspired us to realize our prints with styrofoam in the 6th grade classes. This material was cut from used food trays. The small plates have become the matrices for our prints. After analyzing the works of Miró, we found a large graphic repertoire of little men, eyes, animals, flowers and birds of strange shapes, stars and moons. Thus we copied the drawings on the styrofoam and engraved our printing plates with a sharp pencil. The background of the sheet has been colored with a collage of tissue papers with the typical colors of Miro: red, yellow, green and blue.
The printing of the matrix was made with black ink, repeating printing twice or more times on the same sheet.
