Begin by folding your 12 x 18 inch piece of paper in half lengthwise. Choose the shape for your vase from the resource pages. Draw half of the vase on the folded edge of the paper. Make certain that you draw on the right side, cut out the shape and lay flat. Choose a Greek border design for the top edge of your vase. Choose another design for the neck of the vase. If your vase has handles, decorate them as well. Use various designs and create slightly curved rose of Greek design going across your vase. Carefully measure and cut your scratch board, choose a Greek myth to depict and sketch lightly. Work top to bottom as you draw each stroke thinking about balance between white area’s and textured areas on the scratch board, when completed glue it unto the vase.
