*You woulduse a ''negative'' print, such that what is inked is the ''background'' not the figure (the circle or other shape). With print foam, you take your figure (say a wooden cut-out of a circle, available at craft stores in small and larger sizes in the wood painting section) and press that figure into the foam. Mount the foam on a peice of carboard or some stiff backing. Now carefully ink the backgroud.

*[[File:Victor-Vasarely-Zebegen-25891.jpg|thumb|356px|Zebegen by Vasarely]]The tricky bit: registration or getting everything to line up. You'd need to draw your grid in light pencil and think up a scheme so that the print place get placed in just the right place...

*HINT: You might want to consider a print paper that is slightly coloured as opposed to stark white (this depends on the look you want to create) — above, in Orion C the paper appears to be cream.

*These would be quite easy to produce. For the positive plate: Trace around your wooden circle (or small inner square) on the print foam with a pencil; cut with scissors and affix circle to square plate. For the negative plate: cut out square of print foam in the proper grid size (e.g. 4" x4"); attach to rigid backing of the same size; press wooden circle into print foam square (hopefully, dead in the center). You'll need to think about how to do that alignment.

*Even very young children can do the overall design and the actual printing. It won't be exact, but it will definitely be interesting and charming.
