Ming Vase Scratch Art

Thank you Miriam at arte a scuola for this amazing idea based on iconic blue and white ceramics of unusual shapes from China's Ming Dynasty (1368-1644).

My grade 5 students used pictures of Ming vases as a reference when drawing their own large symmetrical vessel. They then filled in their shape with layers of blue oil pastel in various shades. They then painted the shape with a couple of layers of white paint before using a wooden skewer to scratch in their drawings.
