Scratch Art Tiki Face Designs
We recently completed a scratch-art project using Tiki inspired symmetrical faces as subject matter. For this project, I chose to use the largest student-grade scratch material I could find. I believe the sheets were 11×13″. We discussed and practiced symmetrical transfer to create our own Tiki faces. I also made available a set of pre-printed Tiki Style faces to choose from for those who didn’t feel confident about creating their own. After transferring the designs to scratch paper with chalk, I provided examples of wood texture and demonstrated some techniques to make the designs resemble three-dimensional carved wood.
The scratch material we used had a glossy white surface beneath the black. I provided some bright colored permanent markers for those students who wanted to add some accent color to their designs.
