Trace over the photocopied picture outline with crayon.
Thick lines work most effectively.
Brush over the whole page with thin paint. Only use one color.

Color a lot of the picture with crayon. Leave some areas white.
Brush on the whole page with thin paint. Only use one color.
Draw in the lines with crayon.
Paint the picture with a variety of colors.
The crayon lines could make the picture better to paint.

This is not a resist but it is a fantastic extension of the previous activities.
Paint the photo with watercolors.
When the paint is dry, use crayons to add detail and depth of color.
Rip off a little small note that is in regards to 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 location of the picture using a textured object placed underneath.
Sandpaper, string, crumpled paper, bricks, bark, leaves, signs and rocks can cause interesting patterns. Experiment having a part of blank paper first.
Use grated pieces or shavings of crayon to create a swirling effect.
Sprinkle the crayon on to the photo then rub them your thumb.
This is effective if you use different colors together.
It makes effective animal fur, storm clouds or grass.
Go on the outline of the picture with black crayon.
Color the remainder of the image thickly with crayon.
If possible use a small bit of cotton wool or cloth to polish the image.
Heat in the friction of rubbing melts the crayon and results in a smooth shiny effect.
Apply a smaller amount of vegetable oil to your cotton wool ball.
Gently rub the oil in the back of the picture.
The oil will make the image almost transparent.
Students may be because of the oil soaked balls in the paint tray.
Encourage the crooks to look at and on the picture to spread the oil.
Hang the picture in a very classroom window to generate a stained glass effect.
