Here's an Art Attack that puts old pens, broken rulers and other old art materials to use once more!
You will need:
The chances are you've got some old or broken art materials lying around.
You know the sort of thing - felt tips that have started to run out, broken rulers, and so on.
Well, why not put them to use again, one last time?
Make a start by sketching a picture by using felt tips that are running out.
|Alternatively, you could use old pieces of wax crayon to do this.|
|Old bits of sponge can be put to use on the picture, too - just dip into paint...|
|...and sponge gently onto the paper for a great furry texture.|
|Build up the layers by sponging on darker colours or higlights.|
|An old eraser can also be dipped into paint...|
|...to be scraped on to the picture.|
|And once again, using a lighter colour will give highlight effect.|
|A broken ruler can be dipped into paint...|
|...and flicked onto the picture.|
|If you've got a broken set square, you can use the small broken edge for drawing details.|
