Kids Club #4 - Magical Scratch Art

In the current Kids Club we show you a magic trick to create your own scratching art!

What kind of material you need:

  • Thicker white paper DIN A4 – no cardboard
  • wax crayons
  • Chinese Ink (black)
  • Baby power or starch flour
  • Brush
  • Wooden sticks or skewers
  • possibly disposable gloves
  • Washable base or old newspaper


  • Paint a white paper with wax pencils colorful (e.g. rainbow)
  • Put baby powder or starch on it and rub the image completely. Then knock the remnants off the picture
  • Paint the picture completely with Chinese ink (Note: use disposable gloves and put a washable base or old newspapers underneath)
  • Let the whole thing dry for about 30 minutes
  • With a wooden stick or wood-skewers you can scratch your own motifs into the paper.
  • The magic scratching art is finished

Send us your scratching art by e-mail to and win a creative workshop (1.5 hours) at Urban Art Kids. The deadline for submissions is 15 June.

We look forward to your art!
