Use listing coloring pages the other of those crayon processes for your following classroom art lesson.
Trace on the photocopied picture outline with crayon.
Thick lines perform most optimally.
Brush in the whole page with thin paint. Only use one color.
The waxed lines will resist the paint as well as the picture will glow through.
Color most of the picture with crayon. Leave some areas white.
Brush on the whole page with thin paint. Only use one color.
Draw within the lines with crayon.
Paint the picture with numerous colors.
The crayon lines could make the image much easier to paint.
They stop edges bleeding into one another.
This is not a resist but it’s an excellent 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 smaller notepad that is certainly about the height and width of a matchbox.
Use a crayon to scribble thickly onto 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 region of the image with a textured object placed underneath.
Sandpaper, string, crumpled paper, bricks, bark, leaves, signs and rocks can cause interesting patterns. Experiment having a piece of blank paper first.
Use grated pieces or shavings of crayon to generate a swirling effect.
Sprinkle the crayon on to the photo then rub them 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 picture thickly with crayon.
If possible use a smaller piece of cotton wool or cloth to polish the picture.
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 over the back of the picture.
The oil is likely to make the picture almost transparent.
Students might be in the oil soaked balls inside a paint tray.
Encourage these to check out and on the picture to spread the oil.
Hang the image in a very classroom window to produce a stained glass effect.
