Texture Rubbings

This project is perfect for any age at all!

Step# 1- Look all around the house fun things with texture, I used a basket, a rug, a place mat, a tile, wood and a boot tray. Have fun on the hunt!

Step#2-Use the side of a crayon and sketchbook paper to rub over the texture. Cover completely.

Step#3- Paint over the rubbings using watercolors. Let dry.

  • Use the texture rubbing as backgrounds for drawings
  • Fold them and staple together to make a book
  • Laminate them and use as place mats
  • Frame the best one
  • Cut the textures into geometric shapes and make a collage
  • Layout cut similar sized shapes to form a paper quilt

  1. I love texture rubbings. They’re a fun and creative way to add interesting shapes and patterns to my art projects. I start by gathering some interesting materials such as leaves, fabrics, wood panels, buttons, and more. Then, I take a piece of paper and a crayon or pencil and lay them over the item. Next, I gently rub the crayon over the paper to create a rubbing of the object’s texture. This is a great way to explore different textures and make unique works of art. I like to combine different rubbings together to create unique patterns and designs. It’s so much fun to experiment with, and I love the results I get every time.
