Here's a cool DIY idea. If you ever host parties or events where theres a possibility of a giveaway/prize, scratchers are a cool way to pump up the guests! This post from ArtMind will show you how to make your own personal scratchers! These are also a great promo idea if you run your own business... use them like business cards or for give-aways.
What you'll need:
Cardboard, your lottery ticket design, glue stick, clear sticky back plastic (contact paper), metallic acrylic paint (preferably silver) and washing liquid.
Before you get started, print out a design that you want to be on the lottery tickets.
If your printer can take thick paper, you can print it directly on the cardboard and skip this part. If you do it in two steps, it is nice to get a fun color background paper and glue the design onto the card.
Then you take a piece of sticky back plastic and put it onto the design.
Mix some metallic acrylic paint with washing liquid.
Try to use 1 part washing liquid and 2 parts of paint. Mix the substance.
Paint the plastic part on the ticket and let it dry.
Make sure that the picture underneath the paint is hidden.
Add another layer if this is not the case.
And then SCRATCH! Awesome....
