RUBBING TECHNIQUES

Variation 1:

Rip off a little small note which is in regards to the height and width of a matchbox.
Use a crayon to scribble thickly on top of the paper.
Turn the paper over and taking advantage of your thumb rub the crayon on to the picture.
This creates a very soft smooth effect.

Variation 2:

Color a place of the picture having a textured object placed underneath.
Sandpaper, string, crumpled paper, bricks, bark, leaves, signs and rocks can produce interesting patterns. Experiment using a little bit of blank paper first.

Variation 3:

Use grated pieces or shavings of crayon to produce a swirling effect.
Sprinkle the crayon on to the photo then rub them your thumb.

TRANSPARENT TECHNIQUE

Go within the outline of the image with black crayon.
Color the remainder of the photo thickly with crayon.
If possible use a small piece of cotton wool or cloth to polish the image.
Heat through the friction of rubbing melts the crayon and generates a smooth shiny effect.
Apply a small amount of vegetable oil to some cotton wool ball.
Gently rub the oil in the back of the image.
The oil can make the picture almost transparent.
Students could be in the oil soaked balls in a paint tray.
Encourage them to check out and on the picture to spread the oil.
