Scratch Art with Oil Pastels

scratch art mittenMaking scratch art with oil pastels can be rather basic, but have you tried making different color combos on one piece of art? Or coloring three layers to see what happens? Many different textures are possible, including this fuzzy-looking mitten. Please note that I used Portfolio pastels, which are really soft and rich in color. I cannot vouch for other brands at the moment.

MATERIALS
• Multimedia paper
• Ruler
• Oil pastels, I recommend Portfolio brand
• Wood stylus

DIRECTIONS
1. Use the ruler to draw a frame all around the edge of the paper. You can just line up the sides and draw a line on each side with a pencil.
2. My sample has lots of layers. The frame is first pink pastel and then blue on top.
3. The mitten is a layer of yellow, then purple, then pink.
4. The background is yellow with green on top.
5. Use the stylus to scratch the art in different directions. Wood grain looks good for the frame, then “energy lines” around the mitten, and then lots of fuzzy lines inside the mitten.
