Scratch board art

A variation on resist paintings.


  • Paper
  • Coloured crayons (Neon colours look amazing!)
  • Black or dark coloured poster paint mixed with a dash of soap (to help the paint adhere to the wax)
  • Jar of water (for paint)
  • Brushes (for paint)
  • Popscicle stick or pen cap (to scrape the paint off the paper)


  • Use the crayons to cover the entire sheet of paper with colour. Use stripes, designs, random scribbles!
  • Paint over all of the crayon with dark coloured paint.
  • Wait for paint to dry.
  • Use a popscicle stick or pen cap to create a design by gently scraping the paint off the paper!
