_*"A technique where a top layer of color is scratched to reveal a colour beneath. The term comes from the Italian word sgraffire meaning (literally) “to scratch”.
The ‘wrong end’ of a paint brush works well for sgraffito. If you use a knife to do it, you need to be careful not to accidentally cut through the paper or canvas."*_Thank you for introducing me to a new artistic technique term – I LOVE your creation, Mel.
Thanks heaps Keith. Eyebrow tweezers worked well too. LOL
This is wonderful. I love the shapes in the tree.
Thanks so much Sabrina
