    _*"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
