Scraped Paint Tutorial
June 28th, 2010 by Craftylocks

scraped-paint-sectionThis is one of the very versatile paper crafts for children. You can make patterns, pictures, even write words by scraping into the paint. You just need some paper and paint, and some tools to do the scraping. Tools like a piece of card, the end of a brush or even fingers will do!

To make a more dramatic scraped paint image, first coat the paper with a base layer of acrylic paint. If you are using just one layer of paint and scraping through to the paper, then any sort of paint is fine.

scraped-paint2 While the paint is still wet scrape into the paint with a tool, like the end of a paint brush or a peice of card.
scraped-paint-word You can scrape patterns or words into the wet paint.

Cut bits from the finished piece for all sorts of paper crafts.

Lovely to see you again:-). Yes, it has to be while it is wet. It is a bit like finger painting where you move the wet paint around – but by using more detailed tools it can create cool patterns. Lots of fun too!!
