Daily Doodle: Crayon Transfer

 Scratch Art

Tiny Rotten Peanuts has introduced a Crayon Transfer technique http://tinyrottenpeanuts.com/crayon-transfer-technique/ that we will be doing again and again. Actually, our sweet friends sent Rainbow Scratch Art Paper in booklets from Korea (similar to this Melissa & Doug version http://tinyrottenpeanuts.com/crayon-transfer-technique/) You can easily omit the prep and purchase ready-made scratch paper!
There is actually an Italian word for it in the art world: sgraffito http://painting.about.com/od/paintingforbeginners/ss/Sgraffito.htm


We started by prepping a piece of cardboard with a waxy rainbow and covering half of it with black.
This gave O some etching/scratching time while seeing the two effects; the black etchings stand out significantly better with such a strong contrast in the background.


Then we got to work on a transfer sheet.
If I had read Tiny Rotten Peanuts post in depth, I would have made the rainbow stripes closer together.
We folded the sheet in half and O used the edge of a fork to make her mark, before opening a surprise piece of work.
