View Full Version : Wax scraping

I remember when I was a lot younger covering a piece of paper with lots of colorful wax crayon. Afterwards you would cover it in black crayon then scrape off the black for a colourful drawing.

Here is the same thing with ArtRage, the black is a separate layer. The lines have been scraped using the eraser.

Hey, that's a cool idea, Charlie, thanks for sharing.

Ah, etching. I used to do that when I was at school as well. Very cool.

You took me back to school with this one.

This look was one of my earliest class art projects and everyone in the class looked good doing it.

I still like it and I particularly like how you integrated it with larger graphic 'daisy' shape.

Nostalgia! I'm definitely going to have to play with this. Nice tip!

that's how you do sgraffito techniques with artrage.

When I first started using ArtRage, I was playing with this technique to try to duplicate the traditional scratchboard work I have done for years. I scratched the image in a black layer over a white layer, then airbrushed the color onto the white background. I couldn't get the finite detail I do with scratchboard, but thought this was interesting and fun.

Nice one. Good use of the technique for the wire hair!

A very nice technique takes me back to my childhood:):)
