DIY Scratchboard Art Tutorial

In this week’s video tutorial, we’re creating diy scratchboards!

 

Scratchboards are painted black, and then the artist can scratch their design into the board, which removes the paint to reveal the color underneath! These are really fun and easy to make, for both kids and adults. I have great memories from getting to make these in Elementary school! This is a bit messy, and would be a good outdoor project.

Difficulty: Easy

Time needed: ~1-2 hours (including drying time, and time for scratching your design)

Materials:

Tips:

  • Use at least two coats and this works better if the coats are thick
  • use a hair dryer to speed up the drying time between coats
  • let the first coat completely dry before adding the second
  • use thick layers of crayon
