Total Art Soul has a GREAT idea for putting polystyrene containers to good use after you've emptied them of your takeout. Use them for printing. The super-simple process could be used to make art, greeting cards or even t-shirts. Besides the canvas/paper/fabric of your choosing and a polystyrene container, you'll need a pencil, paint or ink and a small roller. To see how it all comes together, visit Total Art Soul.

is it a stamp?

ok, i like many things here, but the idea of not posting how it was done - i dislike very much!

Talk about serendipity .. I tweeted this post the other day because I love the idea and wante d to do it but polystyrene containers are rare in Australia. BUT, yesterday I bought something from a deli I've never been to before and it came on a polystyrene tray. It's pretty small but enough for what I want to do! Yay!

You can also just colour the polystyrene with crayola markers and then press on to paper.
