You will need:: Heavy White Paper
: Tempera Paint - Black.
: A broad or foam brush
: Wax Crayons.
: Toothpicks, paper clips or something similar that you can scratch paint with.
: Apron and a cover sheet, newspapers or paper towels.
Let’s get started:
Using the wax crayons colour the entire sheet of paper with bright colours. Often brighter and thicker colour layering is better. Keep in mind the wax in the crayons also acts as a barrier to help prevent the paper becoming too soggy and unusable. It is a good idea to make sure that you have all the artworks named on the back before you continue.

Once the paint is completely dry you can begin to scratch off your desired image with a toothpick. This allows the brighter wax crayon to be revealed against the darker black surface.
Looks like magic. This the bit the kids love the most.
- Often it is a good idea to do this in two parts over two days. This will make sure the paint is completely dry and ready for scraping.
- You can use anything for scraping from keys to sticks.
- It is important to make sure the paint is dry.
