The Best Scratch Art Kits and Books for Adults

15 Scratch Art Paintings for Adults on Amazon

Are you looking for a new relaxing hobby? Try scratch painting! In this post, I’ll share the best scratch art kits and scratch books I could find on Amazon for adults.

Scratch-art is perfect for beginners. You don’t need to be an artist, have talent, or have good drawing skills. Most of these scratch painting kits have everything prepared for you, you just have to scrape off the outlines.

Scratch painting is the perfect activity to unwind after a busy day. It’s relaxing and so satisfying when the colors, patterns, and designs reveal.

I remember when we used this simple technique to create art in school. We loved to create them and were so amazed by the colorful outcome.

To be honest, I didn’t know that scratch art kits were a thing. In my country, I’ve never ever seen them in a craft shop (I made a quick research, some big stores sell a couple of books for kids and I’ve also seen a kit in one of the stores in my town).

Now I feel the urge to order at least one from Amazon (lol). For starters, I’ll make a handmade art piece (I will share the tutorial on the blog I promise). I already have a couple of ideas.

You can frame and display them in your home, send some of them as greeting cards or personalized notes. They would make perfect gifts for crafters and art lovers. I would love to get one for my birthday!

But now let’s see all the amazing kits and books I’ve found!


I’ll divide this list into three sections: scratch art books for adults, scratch painting kits, and scratch creativity kits (the last one is made up by me, I wanted to distinguish them).

Recommended tools

Your scratch kit doesn’t have tools? Do you want to take scratch paintings to the next level? These are the tools you’ll need:

  • Scratching tools
  • Clean brush
  • Repair pen
  • Gloves
