How to create interesting scratchboards.

I think they got it!
they had no difficulty at all drawing with paper clips, old pens and even nails!
They seems to really enjoy the unusual drawing tools.
While using really sharp things is traditional with scratch board, I was a little apprehensive about giving 10 year old a knife to draw with!
But they had no difficulties with using an old pen, out of ink, paper clips and nails.

They also used several different colors of oil pastel to create their boards, and did plan ahead to the artwork they were designing.
It took planning to get the right colors just where they wanted under the layers of India Ink. Simple thumbnail sketches helped in this.
Still, it is a lot for anyone to plant ahead like this.
