FREE IDEAS FOR EASY CRAFTS AND ACTIVITIES WITH FAS PAINTS, INKS AND DYES
Scratch Art Painting with FAS school paints
Kids really enjoy this art lesson—it's like magical art that's easy, colourful, and a lot of fun for all ages.
LEVEL: Pre-school and Primary.
You will need:
White drawing paper.
Oil pastel crayons or wax crayons
Toothpicks or Popsicle sticks
Coloured construction paper
Let’s get started:
Fill the paper with crayon shapes and patterns, making sure to press hard to fill the entire sheet of paper with bright colours.
Once you have filled the paper with colourful crayon patterns, colour heavily over the whole paper using black paint or Indian Ink and allow it to dry. If you don’t have time to wait for the paint or ink to dry, you can cover the colours with a thick black layer of wax crayon.
Plan out a picture or design, and using the Popsicle stick or toothpicks, scratch the design into the black layer. The crayoned colours will show through where you scrape away the black, revealing the colours below.
It is a good idea to make sure that you have all the artworks named on the back before you start.
Thicker paper might be better as paper can get soggy.
Indian Ink is permanent and best suitable for older children.
You may be able to find bright multi coloured card that you can just paint in black over so all you need to do is scratch out your final designs as they have done in the above images.
Share and enjoy.
