Est. Time:
2+ hours

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. craft paper
  2. paint & paint brushes - 2 different colors of paint
  3. fork or comb
  1. Paint your piece of paper one color. I drew a wavy border around the outside so part of it would remain white. This makes it easier to hold onto later when you are scraping. Let your paint completely dry.

  2. When your first color of paint is completely dry, paint over it with a different color. This coat of paint should be fairly thick to completely cover the first color.

  3. Do not wait for this coat of paint to dry. Use a fork or comb to gently scrap the paint.

  4. The first color will appear in your design.

  5. Make a tree design like we did, draw an animal, or create an abstract piece.
