Lutradur as a Teaching Aid

An experienced Reflexologist has recently told us she has found Lutradur to be an invaluable tool for creating teaching aids to help her students.

She was able to make several templates of feet, cut them up and colour code the sections with acrylic paints. This enabled her to identify the various areas, pressure points, muscles, etc. to her pupils.

She chose Lutradur 100gsm, which is one of the heavier, denser weights of Lutradur and although quite flexible to handle, it is stiff enough to keep its shape and remain flat.

The durable nature of Lutradur also means she has been able to use the same aids time and time again, making more illustrations as needed.

A selection of templates shaped like feet. One pair of pink painted feet are at the top of the photograph. In the middle are another pair of feet; the left foot is covered in 5 equal horizontal pieces of coloured Lutradur, namely red, yellow, green, orange and blue. The right foot is also covered in strips of coloured Lutradur, but these are vertical.  
At the bottom of the photograph are a further pair of templates, showing a left and right foot and ankle, shown from the side. These also have coloured sections of Lutradur placed on top of them, showing the outer edge and bones of the ankle. 
In the top left of the pictures are 3 bottles and one tube of acrylic paint, plus a small paintbrush.
