Scratch is a technique of non-traditional drawing, when you draw a picture by scratching the paper, which is pre-coated with wax and is filled with ink. Pictures in the technique differ by contrast lines of the drawing and black background.
In this article, we will tell you how to prepare a list for drawing and show a simple pattern in this technique, which will be easy even for the child of 3 years old.
You will need:
A3 sheet of paper
Jar with water
If you want to get the contrast of black and white colors, then skip this step and leave the white sheet. If not, then paint it with watercolors of different colors and let it dry.
After complete drying of the paint cover the sheet with the candle wax.
Mix ink with soap and paint the sheet.
Now I suggest you to draw a colorful firework. To do this, prepare stencils of stars and sharp objects for scratching of the pattern, for example, a pen without ink or set for sculpting with clay or different plastic knives.
It is better to lay old newspapers under the work sheet.
Start scratching out a silhouette of the city, you can experiment with shapes and stripes.
Now scratch out the stars with the stencils.
Add lines to the stars and draw the additional items.
