Sgraffito is a technique that I haven't used for ages. I laid on a layer of oil pastels and then cover all of it with black gesso. I'm not sure if this is the right use of gesso but it seems to work. By putting one color under another one and scraping through the upper layers, you can show colour underneath. It is a pretty cool technique. Of course I only did the one and then moved on to a piece of bookbinding that I haven't yet finished. My studio is full of half finished pieces! Still it was fun.
