Crayon Scratch Art
Crayon Scratch Art was one of my go to art projects when I was a child. I remember how much time that I took to diligently perform the processes just so that I could marvel at the end result each time. I decided to try this one out with my own children and it was a big success. When the technique is complete, you can etch patterns, designs, writing, or drawings.
Basically, you will be creating two layers of thick crayon surface on one piece of paper. First, you start by pressing firmly and building the colorful design base on the sheet of paper. Next, you follow up by doing the unthinkable and completely coloring over all of your beautiful artwork in a thick layer of black crayon. Lastly, use a pointed stick like a toothpick or an etching stick and scratch away at the black crayon surface. With every scratch that you make to the surface, you will reveal hints of your vibrant masterpiece below.
