Use print coloring pages and one of these crayon techniques for the following classroom art lesson.
Trace within the photocopied picture outline with crayon.
Thick lines work most effectively.
Brush over 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 the majority of the picture with crayon. Leave some areas white.
Brush in the whole page with thin paint. Only use one color.
Draw over the lines with crayon.
Paint the image with numerous colors.
The crayon lines can make the photo easier to paint.
They will minimize edges bleeding into the other.
This is not a resist but it’s an incredible extension in the previous activities.
Paint the image with watercolors.
When the paint is dry, use crayons to incorporate detail and depth of color.
Rip off a smaller small note which is about the height and width of 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 picture.
This produces a very soft smooth effect.
Color a region of the photo having a textured object placed underneath.
Sandpaper, string, crumpled paper, bricks, bark, leaves, signs and rocks can cause interesting patterns. Experiment having a bit of blank paper first.
Use grated pieces or shavings of crayon to generate a swirling effect.
Sprinkle the crayon on to the photo and after that rub them with your thumb.
This is effective if you use different colors together.
It makes effective animal fur, storm clouds or grass.
Go in 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 through the friction of rubbing melts the crayon and results in a smooth shiny effect.
Apply a little amount of vegetable oil to your cotton wool ball.
Gently rub the oil on the back of the image.
The oil can make the image almost transparent.
Students can be given the oil soaked balls in a paint tray.
Encourage these phones go over and in the picture to spread the oil.
Hang the photo in a classroom window to make a stained glass effect.
