Use print coloring pages and one of such crayon approaches for the next classroom art lesson.
Trace on the photocopied picture outline with crayon.
Thick lines work best.
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 a lot of the picture with crayon. Leave some areas white.
Brush within the whole page with thin paint. Only use one color.
Draw on the lines with crayon.
Paint the picture with any number of colors.
The crayon lines can make the picture better to paint.

This is not a resist yet it’s a great extension from the previous activities.
Paint the image with watercolors.
When the paint is dry, use crayons to provide detail and depth of color.
Rip off a small piece of paper that’s about the size of a matchbox.
Use a crayon to scribble thickly onto the paper.
Turn the paper over and taking advantage of your thumb rub the crayon on to the picture.
This produces a very soft smooth effect.
Color a place of the picture which has a textured object placed underneath.
Sandpaper, string, crumpled paper, bricks, bark, leaves, signs and rocks can make interesting patterns. Experiment using a piece of blank paper first.
Use grated pieces or shavings of crayon to produce a swirling effect.
Sprinkle the crayon on to the photo then rub them your thumb.
This works well if you utilize different colors together.
It makes effective animal fur, storm clouds or grass.
Go on the outline of the image with black crayon.
Color the remainder of the photo thickly with crayon.
If possible use a small bit of cotton wool or cloth to polish the image.
Heat from your friction of rubbing melts the crayon and generates a smooth shiny effect.
Apply a small amount of vegetable oil with a cotton wool ball.
Gently rub the oil within the back of the picture.
The oil could make the picture almost transparent.
Students could be given the oil soaked balls in a very paint tray.
Encourage the crooks to review and over the picture to spread the oil.
Hang the photo in a very classroom window to create a stained glass effect.
