Scrafitti Indian Corn Card

Scrafitti Indian Corn CardYou can buy your own scratch art paper, but it’s a lot more fun to make your own. Just be sure to test out your oil pastels first as I’ve found older, harder pastels don’t work nearly as well as soft and slippery ones.1. Each student started with a 5.5" x 8.5" white cardstock paper. They drew a simple ear of corn and husks and traced all the lines with a wide, chisel tip black permanent marker.2. The corn and background was colored in heavily with oil pastel.3. A black pastel was used to color over all of the art. The heavier the pastel, the better.5. Students used a stylus or stick to scratch away the top layer. Younger students may want to just scratch, but older could try working in different directions to add more interest.6. A folded piece of black paper with a message written in metallic marker made a nice envelope for the card. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
