What age are you doing scratch art with? Do you want to make your own
scratch paper? You can do controlled or uncontrolled. Uncontrolled is
where the students arbitrarily color areas and cover them with black
tempera and then draw (scratch) their illustration. Controlled is where
they sketch, make a copy, color original, paint, then transfer original
(possibly with the straight pin poked thru onto the scratch board and
they control what color their illustration is. An alternative is the
thin the tempera so much that you can see thru slightly to the crayon
drawing. Neon crayons works great, especially using the bright colorful
photographs that you can find in Nat'l Geo as reference for the
illustrations. Bamboo skewers from the grocery make great scratch tools.
