Looking for an easy craft activity that will provide amazing results? These striking tropical Scratch Fish shapes will make an eye-catching addition to your ‘under the sea’ projects!
You can use these scratch fish for so many things! These fun fish designs can be displayed together as a school; they can be turned into a mobile; or added to posters and individual work. Create majestic coral displays, or make an “aquarium” by hanging them inside a cardboard diorama! The ideas are endless.
To use these Scratch Fish simply scratch into the black coating using the included wooden tools to reveal the rainbow coloured scales underneath. Patterns that follow the fish’s shape and create patterns will look great.
Each card measures approximately 7cm x 15cm and is made from 250gsm card.
This class pack includes 24 cards (six designs x 4 of each) and 24 wooden scratch tools.
Elements of Art:
Scratch Shapes provide the ideal way for students to explore and develop the elements of line, pattern and shape.
1. Vary the thickness and direction of lines to create emphasis, size and movement
2. Repeat and combine different lines to create new symbols.
3. Combine lines and shape to fill a background space.
4. Lines can be used to make shapes and type both geometric and organic.
5. Areas scratched out around and between shapes can be used to highlight areas.
6 . A pattern is created when any mark or line is repeated. Patterns created from lines and shapes can create the look of texture. Imagine scales on a reptile or pebbles on a pathway!
