DIY scratch art
So, Iím new here and a self taught arts & craft hobbyist who enjoys painting with acrylic craft paint. So, Iím not that knowledgeable in the ďart world.Ē

I posted this on the Mixed Media thread without realizing there was a dedicated scratch art thread, but someone pointed it out to me.

Anyway, I recently discovered this fun diy scratch art method on YouTube. You mix black paint (I just use my acrylic craft paint) with a little dish soap and paint over oil pastels or crayons on thick paper (Iím using cardstock paper and student grade soft oil pastels). After it dries, you can take something with a point to scratch your design.

My question for all you people who know more about art than me is if there is a way to seal it? Iíve googled and found that you canít really seal oil pastels, but Iím making it to put on a home made card for my cousinís wedding. Iím not wanting it to last forever, I just am hoping to prevent unwanted scratching from happening after Iím finished with the design. I tried spraying a scrap piece with Modge Podge gloss acrylic sealer and while it made it nice and shiny, I was still able to make scratch marks after it dried. Is it the dish soap that interferes or is it because thereís acrylic paint on top of oil pastels?

Thanks for any suggestions or explanations

Re: DIY scratch art
Don't know about how to seal scratch board art but if you are attaching it to a card you might try using a clear laminating sheet over the front of the card. This is just a suggestion that might work. Of course you might want to try it on a scrap piece first.
