Good idea, Gail! I had not thought of a teachers' supply store Most of them sell to the general public. I used to be able to buy duplo/legos in bulk there, but they have wised up, lol!

For Christmas I bought one of my granddaughters charcoal and charcoal paper from Dick Blick's and also a gift card so she can get her own art supplies. It is an awesome store for art supplies. I bought the premade scratch paper from a teacher's supply catalog.

I really enjoyed this with my kids too, roerick3. Half the fun was watching them enjoy it. Thank you for your very nice comment on my work! I'm very glad you like it and appreciate your letting me know!

I've done this form with my own kids when they were young and I enjoyed it as much as they did. Great explanation of how it's done. I love your puzzles and the colors are bright and stimulating. Thanks.

I am not familiar with A.C.Moore but I know Michael's has had it in the past. I buy a lot online from Dick Blick (DickBlick.com). This super art store has just about anything there is related to art! From your experience with the greenware, I think you would enjoy it!

You know Jill, I think I would like to "dig" into something like that, I worked with green ware ceramics years ago, and loved carving extra details into the form before firing!! Would a store like A.C. Moore, or Michaels sell the supplies? Thanks for the idea! :)

Gail, that is very interesting how you created your own scratchboard prior to pre-coated board! I imagine your class had loads of fun! This medium lends itself to all levels of art ability. I have seen some pieces that are incredibly well done!

Thank you, Jo. I'm glad you enjoyed both the puzzle and the description of scratchboard art. I suggest you give it a try; it's lots of fun!

It does look like scratch art, Jill. I used to do some scratch art projects with my second graders. Originally I had the kids use bright colored crayons to cover a piece of paper. Then the covered that with black crayon. After that they used the point of their scissors to scratch the design. Later we found paper that already had the colors and then black on top and used a pointed dowl like stick (something like a pencil shape but no lead) to scratch the design. The kids had a lot of fun with it.

Jill you explained 'Scratch Art' very well, I have seen and read about this art in Art magazines, and one day would love to try my hand at it, mean while I'll settle for solving your lovely piece, Thanks Jill.

I hope you can follow my overly run-on sentence, lol!

Actually, this type of art is made from scratch board, in which a stylus is used to etch a precoated surface on which the stylus scratches a design, image etc to reveal the underlying surface unlike pencil , which adds to a surface (additive), the stylus removes (reductive) part of the surface. "Scratch Art" may be a Jill original term, lol! I'm so glad you liked both the design and the colors, dear Barb!

Made the board in 10th place but it didn't take long to get kicked off. LOL
I'm not really familiar with scratch art, Jill, but I like your puzzle and I love the colours. :-)
