RE: scratchboard on the cheap

This may be more elaborate than you want to go, but how about very small,
cheap screwdrivers with the ends ground to a point? This assumes that you
have access to a metal grinder.

A good source of cheap tools to adapt to anything else is the Dollar Store
(Dollar Tree, 98 cent store) etc.

Subject: scratchboard on the cheap

i bought some scratchboard recently and now i am wondering what sorts of
tools to give my students to work on it with. i've been going around the
house and fooling around with little files and paperclips and such. i don't
have the traditional scratchboard tools in my classroom. what do you
recommend i have my students use?
