Here's a scratchy way to draw pictures.
You will need:
Rub a thick layer of white oil pastel onto a piece of black paper.
Make sure that you completely cover it - no gaps allowed!
Next, draw onto it with something pointed.
You can use a plastic fork, knife or spoon, cocktail sticks or an old ballpoint pen that's run out.
Neil's using a plastic knife.
|Just draw in the same way you would with a pen or pencil.|
|The plastic knife scratches away the oil pastel to reveal the black paper underneath!|
|The harder you scratch - the darker the lines.|
|For wispy lines, just scratch lightly.|
|If you make a mistake, you can easily cover it up by rubbing on some more oil pastel.|
|Then just carry on and scratch again.|
To scratch away bigger areas, use something thicker.
Here, Neil's using a spoon.
