Frotting with crayons or crayons


What is that crazy thing? Frotting? Never heard of it! But if I tell you, we all know it...

Frotteren is the funny drawing technique in which you make a print, by “rubbing off” with a pencil or wax crayon. For example, place a coin, a dried leaf or a piece of dried tree bark under your sheet of paper. After that, rub the surface with a soft (color) pencil, a wax crayon or a pastel chalk pencil. So this creates a funny print. You can make fun effects with it.

Look around you, maybe you'll see more fun textured objects that you can use for frottage! Think of a shoe sole, a piece of curtains, etc.
