FunLab campers love scratch art – so my question was can we make it instead of buying the sheets? After a little bit of research online I found lots of sites which used HOMEMADE SCRATCH ART which inspired me to try it out at the FunLab Bilingual Summer Camp. This is an excellent project for TEACHERS – low cost with lots of creative possibilites!
You will need:
Water color paper
Black acrylic paint
Let’s get started:
Step 1: Cut a piece of watercolor paper in 4 equal parts. Color a rainbow with oil pastels.
Step 2: Use a q-tip to smooth over the pastels covering completely the white paper.
Step 3: Paint with black acrylic paint.
Step 4: START SCRATCHING away the black and discover the colors underneath! You can even use the small end of a paint brush to scratch away the paint.
We were talking about leaves and the kids created reproductions of the different leaves we collected during out nature walk!
