Use listing coloring pages and one of such crayon processes for your following classroom art lesson.
Trace on the photocopied picture outline with crayon.
Thick lines perform most optimally.
Brush on the whole page with thin paint. Only use one color.
The waxed lines will resist the paint and also the picture will glow through.
Color the majority of the picture with crayon. Leave some areas white.
Brush over the whole page with thin paint. Only use one color.
Draw in the lines with crayon.
Paint the picture with many colors.
The crayon lines could make the picture easier to paint.
They will eradicate edges bleeding into the other.
This is not a resist but it is an incredible extension in the previous activities.
Paint the photo with watercolors.
When the paint is dry, use crayons to include detail and depth of color.
Rip off a small sheet of paper that is about the size of a matchbox.
Use a crayon to scribble thickly on 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 region of the image which has a textured object placed underneath.
Sandpaper, string, crumpled paper, bricks, bark, leaves, signs and rocks can create interesting patterns. Experiment having a part of blank paper first.
Use grated pieces or shavings of crayon to generate a swirling effect.
Sprinkle the crayon on to the picture then rub them with your thumb.
This is useful if you use different colors together.
It makes effective animal fur, storm clouds or grass.
Go within 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 the friction of rubbing melts the crayon and results in a smooth shiny effect.
Apply a little amount of vegetable oil to some cotton wool ball.
Gently rub the oil within the back of the photo.
The oil can make the photo almost transparent.
Students could be given the oil soaked balls in a very paint tray.
Encourage the crooks to go over and on the picture to spread the oil.
Hang the photo inside a classroom window to make a stained glass effect.
