Trace on the photocopied picture outline with crayon.
Thick lines perform most optimally.

The waxed lines will resist the paint and the picture will glow through.
Color the majority of the picture with crayon. Leave some areas white.
Brush within the whole page with thin paint. Only use one color.
Draw within the lines with crayon.
Paint the photo with numerous colors.
The crayon lines could make the photo much easier to paint.
They will stop edges bleeding into the other.
This is not a resist but it is a fantastic extension from the previous activities.
Paint the image with watercolors.
When the paint is dry, use crayons to include detail and depth of color.
Rip off a small piece of paper which is concerning the height and width of a matchbox.
Use a crayon to scribble thickly to the paper.
Turn the paper over and taking advantage of your thumb rub the crayon on to the picture.
This generates a very soft smooth effect.
Color an area of the image having a textured object placed underneath.
Sandpaper, string, crumpled paper, bricks, bark, leaves, signs and rocks can create interesting patterns. Experiment with a piece of blank paper first.
Use grated pieces or shavings of crayon to make a swirling effect.
Sprinkle the crayon on to the photo and after that rub them 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 photo thickly with crayon.
If possible use a small 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 smaller amount of vegetable oil with a cotton wool ball.
Gently rub the oil over the back of the photo.
The oil could make the image almost transparent.
Students could be in the oil soaked balls in a paint tray.
Encourage the crooks to review and over the picture to spread the oil.
Hang the picture inside a classroom window to generate a stained glass effect.
