Use print coloring pages then one of such crayon methods for the following classroom art lesson.
Trace over the photocopied picture outline with crayon.
Thick lines work best.

The waxed lines will resist the paint and the picture will glow through.
Color a lot 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 image with numerous colors.
The crayon lines will make the image much easier to paint.

This is not a resist but it is a great extension of the previous activities.
Paint the picture with watercolors.
When the paint is dry, use crayons to add detail and depth of color.
Rip off a tiny piece of paper that is certainly about the sized a matchbox.
Use a crayon to scribble thickly to the paper.
Turn the paper over and using your thumb rub the crayon on to the image.
This produces a very soft smooth effect.
Color a place of the image using a textured object placed underneath.
Sandpaper, string, crumpled paper, bricks, bark, leaves, signs and rocks can create interesting patterns. Experiment using a bit of blank paper first.
Use grated pieces or shavings of crayon to generate a swirling effect.
Sprinkle the crayon on to the picture and after that rub 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 smaller part of cotton wool or cloth to polish the image.

Apply a little amount of vegetable oil with a cotton wool ball.
Gently rub the oil within the back of the image.
The oil is likely to make the photo almost transparent.
Students can be in the oil soaked balls in a very paint tray.
Encourage these to look at and over the picture to spread the oil.
