Wow.. an overload of memories.  I used to love doing this through elementary, junior high and even high school (don't tell anyone that.. shh).  I still have some of the original ones I did!  Hours of fun... and little black curly cues.. EVERY WHERE, lol.

One of my art professors did something similar to this.  He would first draw a landscape with colored pencils and then go over the entire picture with black crayon and then scratch the landscape though which gave it a look of night time and shadows.  I know I'm probably not explaining the right way, but the pictures were really amazing.  He would do really huge ones too, for example 6 feet by 6 feet.  I was blown away at the talent he had with something so simple.

I don't remember ever doing this in school! I wonder...Did I miss out on a great fun craft or am I just surpressing my childhood memories? Lol. I'm keen to try it now though. Can you believe that I don't have any crayons in the house? Ah bum. I've been trying it with different things like pastels and watercolour pencils, etc etc without much luck. (I don't dare steal my hubby's oils though! Lol.) Off to ASDA tonight to buy some crayons!  Grin

Heh.. yes, you have to get crayons ;-)  It has to be that lovely waxyness of a crayon, so it can just scratch it away ;-)

I saw this thread and just had to try it.

My first one I did exactly like handprints' instructions.  Instead of doing my own sketch, I printed out an image from the film The Machinist about the size of the paper and scratched through the top sheet to get my image.



(on the bottom it says one of the tag lines "A Little Guilt Goes A Long Way . . .")

Then I tried some variations.  Here's what I learned: you can't use colored pencils at all, try to stay with the same brand of crayon for consistency, and it will not work no matter what on watercolor paper. 

Next I'm off to try the acrylic method.

I'm working on my own take of this project.  I should have a picture of it up soon.  Smiley

How'd you get it to scrach thru another sheet of paper?

You can check out my scratch art at:


 I used a circular design of red, blue, and orange for the under colors.  Then, I covered the top with black.  I used a paper clip to scratch off the black crayon and create the actually design of triangles.  I then, made little photo cut-outs pop out from the triangular designs.  What do you think?
I'm going to put it in a black or colored frame that matches the under colors.  Haven't decided which yet.

2bdvm, that scratch art on the link is truely creative!  that's a great way to display pictures.  I would go with a black frame myself so the colors on the art stand out more!  I beleive this should be a featured project because it's so unique!  What does everyone else think?

Wow... Thanks Runwithgumby! 
I've never seen any scratch art with pictures mixed in with it either, but I thought it was a neat idea.  I'll probably end up using a black frame, for the reason you gave and because it will be easier to find a black frame than a colored frame that actually matches.
