This is one of those projects I remember doing as a child at this time of year to celebrate Guy Fawkes Night in the UK (November 5th). It was always strangely satisfying to color a piece of paper in bright color crayons only to go over them all in black and then recreate the wonder of bonfire night.
You will need:
Card / heavy paper we recycled the inside of a cracker box
Black Tempera Paint
Dish Washing Liquid
Color card in multiple colors, any pattern
Mix 2 drops of the dish washing liquid into about 2tbl spoons of the black paint.
Cover colored paper with a layer of the paint mixture.
D really enjoyed this bit, he could not believe I was telling him to color over the pretty coloring.
Leave to dry
Once dry take the end of an unsharpened pencil and etch your picture into it. D did such a great job drawing his person, grass and lots of fireworks.
Such a fun project this homemade scratch paper could be used in so many ways with beautiful results.
