RE: Silver scratchboard suggestions

My cooperating teacher just did a lesson with silver scratchboard using Mendhi hand designs (henna painting.) As far as I know, the students traced their hand and then looked at Mendi designs to fill in the hand. Then then transferred these to silver or gold scratchboard. Then, they retraced their design onto good white paper with brown colored pencil so it looked like henna. This hand was cut out, and both the white hand and the black scratchboard hand are mounted on a piece of brown construction paper. (5th grade.) They're pretty neat looking, and girls an guys alike were pretty into it. ("It's like tattoos!!!!")

Subject: Glazing alternatives and Silver scratchboard suggestions

Last week I created draped slab leaf bowls with my first and second grade
classes. The students rolled out a slab, then pressed a large leaf into the
clay and cut the leaf shape from the slab. Then we draped the leaf over a bowl
to shape it. They turned out beautifully. I am wondering if anyone has any
suggestions for how to finish them other than glazing. Something that will
show off the imprint of the leaf in the clay that is simple enough for young

Also, I would like to do a silver scratchart project with my 5th and 6th
grades, and I wondered if anyone had any suggested lessons to use this with.
