Delivery Info

Brass rubbing was never this good! A Day in the Countryside is a wonderful art kit for younger children. Place one of the 12 pattern boards below one of the blank spaces in the pictures and rub with one of the richly-coloured pencils to make beautiful patterns appear. There are four different pictures to decorate (four copies of each) on the themes of Butterflies, Snails, Mushrooms and Fish.

A Day in the Countryside is supplied in a sturdy and attractive box, with an elasticated strap to keep all the materials secure inside.

This form of artwork is known as frottage. It was developed by Max Ernst, a German painter and sculptor, in 1925. Ernst was inspired by an ancient wooden floor where the grain of the planks had been accentuated by many years of scrubbing. The patterns of the graining suggested strange images to him. He captured these by laying sheets of paper on the floor and then rubbing over them with a soft pencil.

A Day in the Countryside features the work of Smahane Girardet, a professional artist and illustrator.
