Use print out coloring pages and something of those crayon methods for the next classroom art lesson.
Trace over the photocopied picture outline with crayon.
Thick lines perform most optimally.
Brush in the whole page with thin paint. Only use one color.
The waxed lines will resist the paint along with the picture will glow through.
Color almost all of the picture with crayon. Leave some areas white.
Brush over the whole page with thin paint. Only use one color.
Draw over the lines with crayon.
Paint the photo with numerous colors.
The crayon lines could make the photo better to paint.
They will minimize edges bleeding into the other person.
This is not a resist but it is an incredible extension in the previous activities.
Paint the picture with watercolors.
When the paint is dry, use crayons to provide detail and depth of color.
Rip off a little sheet of paper which is about the size of a matchbox.
Use a crayon to scribble thickly on top of the paper.
Turn the paper over and using your thumb rub the crayon on to the picture.
This creates a very soft smooth effect.
Color a place of the image having a textured object placed underneath.
Sandpaper, string, crumpled paper, bricks, bark, leaves, signs and rocks can make interesting patterns. Experiment using a little bit of blank paper first.
Use grated pieces or shavings of crayon to make a swirling effect.
Sprinkle the crayon on to the photo and then rub all of them with your thumb.
This works well if you are using different colors together.
It makes effective animal fur, storm clouds or grass.
Go on the outline of the photo with black crayon.
Color the remainder of the image thickly with crayon.
If possible use a tiny little bit of cotton wool or cloth to polish the photo.
Heat from your friction of rubbing melts the crayon and creates a smooth shiny effect.
Apply a small amount of vegetable oil to your cotton wool ball.
Gently rub the oil within the back of the image.
The oil will make the photo almost transparent.
Students may be in the oil soaked balls in a paint tray.
Encourage them to look at and over the picture to spread the oil.
Hang the photo in the classroom window to make a stained glass effect.
