In Val Webb’s Heirloom Garden class, we worked on a new technique called sgraffito. I have done this technique in pottery, and with acrylic paints but I had no idea you could do it with colored pencils. Basically the idea is that you layer one thick color over another, and then you scratch designs and texture into your picture. The underneath color that shows up creates a really neat effect. This was interesting to try and I am looking forward to using it in other drawings as well!
