We are coming to the pointy end of the school year, and with this in mind I have planned some fun experimental projects that should only take one lesson to complete. This week we looked at transferring tonal drawing skills to a scratchboard. For this all you need to do is colour a sheet with oil pastel or wax crayon (there must be absolutely no white spaces). Next use a braver to roll a thin layer of ink over the oil pastel. Find a pointy tool and scratch into your design. Remember to curve your lines for 3-d objects, scratch more away where areas are darker. Finally, the more you scratch in, the more interesting your design will be.
